Why We Love This

From the private collection of the author, Mr. Hilary Knight, author and illustrator celebrated for his illustrations of the Eloise series of children's books. First Edition. Oversized folio, unpaginated and profuse illustrations in black and white and color. Souvenir program features striking portraits of the Ballets Russes principals, including Danilova, Balanchine, Lifar, and Markova, alongside stunning onstage photos. Synopses of each ballet are provided, as are reproduction of sets from Gontcharova and Bauchant. Also includes several amusing Art Deco and Art Nouveau-inspired advertisements.

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.
