Why We Love This

From the private collection of the illustrator, Mr. Hilary Knight, author and illustrator celebrated for his illustrations of the Eloise series of children's books, with his stamp of ownership and signature on front pastedown. Inscribed 'From Hilary Knight And Me, Eloise', dated 2013. Laid-in illustrated postcard of Eloise with matching inscription. First Edition. Oversized quarto and exquisitely illustrated in color. ISBN: 0689830394. The 1958 children's classic reissued for a new generation, with several new illustrations from Mr. Knight. It's Christmas Eve in New York City, and Eloise tackles it with her usual gusto and irrepressible spirit. From dressing the tree to passing out parcels, never has a child displayed such enthusiasm for life. Hilary Knight's famous illustrations and Kay Thompson's rich language simply dance off the page. As Eloise says herself, 'Oooooooooooooooooooo! I absolutely love Christmas!' An unforgettable gift for any admirer of Mr. Knight (or Eloise herself), or children's literature aficionado. 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.
