Hilary Knight collection, with his stamp of ownership and signature on front pastedown. First Edition. Oversized folio and pervasive full-page black and white illustrations. ISBN: 067942086X. Here is the perfect remembrance of one of the greatest stars of the century: Marlene Dietrich in intimate close-up, photographed by her friend, artist Alexander Liberman. A unique pictorial remembrance of a legendary star and a very private woman. 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.
