Why We Love This

Hilary Knight collection. First Edition. Oversized square quarto and profuse illustrations in black and white and color. ISBN: 0896595722. For readers with an unquenchable fascination with the Hollywood of years past, here is a survey of the nightspots that sometimes became as famous as the stars who frequented them. Well-reproduced period photos show us the Cocoanut Grove, the Trocadero, Ciro's and other popular clubs (occupied by many of their celebrated patrons), spanning the era from the teens through the 1940s. Postcards, menus, and other ephemera also evoke the style of the times. Tight binding.

About David Duncan

Sometime in the early ’50s, Hilary Knight’s drawings of naughty little girls for Mademoiselle magazine led to a meeting with author Kay Thompson (then a top nightclub performer)--and, of course, to the perpetually adored Eloise, the precocious Plaza dweller who in many ways is Knight’s alter ego. “Eloise will be celebrating her 60th birthday in 2015--not bad for a six-year-old,” says Knight. We’re honored to offer these personal pieces from Knight, who remains as stylish, outspoken, and original as the legendary little girl he brought to life.
