Hilary Knight collection. First Edition. Oversized quarto, unpaginated and illustrations in black and white. Cartier-Bresson was the first foreign visitor to Moscow since 1917 allowed the freedom to photograph whatever and wherever as he pleased. The great photographer's striking images offer a peek behind the Iron Curtain invaluable to students of history and photography alike. Does not include accompanying audio CD, "The best of Marlene Dietrich".

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.
