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. Laid-in illustrated postcard of Eloise inscribed 'From Hilary Knight And Me, Eloise'. First Edition. Oversized quarto and exquisitely illustrated in color. ISBN: 0689827040. The 1957 children's classic reissued for a new generation, with a new cover illustrated by Mr. Knight. Bonjour! Here's the thing of it: Paris has just been discovered by Eloise the little girl from the Plaza.. Here is what Eloise does in Paris: everything. The effect is rather extraordinaire. If you come to Paris with Eloise you will always be glad you did. Thompson and Knight traveled to Paris to research the book, and the illustrations are dotted with the celebrities they knew there: Richard Avedon takes Eloise's passport photograph; Christian Dior prods her tummy, while his young assistant, Yves Saint Laurent, looks on; Lena Horne sits at an outdoor café. 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.
