Hilary Knight collection, with his stamp of ownership on front pastedown. First Edition. Oversized folio and 562 illustrations including over 300 in color. ISBN: 0375506209. A stunning retrospective spanning Diane Arbus's entire career features two hundred full-page duotones, many never before seen, accompanied by an essay on the artist's work, a discussion of her printing techniques, a definitive chronology, and previously unpublished excerpts from letters, notebooks, and other writings. An intimate and comprehensive study of the work of one of the most powerful photographers of the 20th-century. 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.
