Hilary Knight collection. First Edition. Oversized quarto and profuse illustrations in black and white. Souvenir program from the original Broadway run of the Tony-winning play, featuring short biographies of the original cast (Angela Lansbury, Bea Arthur, Frankie Michaels, et al.) and creative team, alongside photographs of the performance.

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.
