Hilary Knight collection, with his stamp of ownership and signature on front pastedown. First Edition. Oversized folio, fully illustrated in color. ISBN: 0810945525. In this colorful and exuberant collection, more than 20 children's book artist's through text and illustrations - most specially created for this book - offer their thoughts about art and the muse that inspires their work. The compilation results in an outstanding collection for art lovers of all ages and a wellspring of inspiration for the artists of tomorrow. Tight binding.

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.
