Why We Love This

Hilary Knight collection, with his stamp of ownership and signature on front pastedown. Page 201 features a cover designed and illustrated by Mr. Knight's parents, with handwritten annotation by Mr. Knight. First Edition. Oversized folio and pervasive illustrations in black and white and color. ISBN: 0789206579. This compendium presents the best of the covers of "The New Yorker" - selected by art director Françoise Mouly and organized thematically - along with preliminary sketches and a look at controversy that sometimes follows in their wake. In addition, six "Sketchbooks" highlight the work of especially evocative cover artists, including Sempé, Spiegelman and Steinberg; complemented by six detachable full-size covers, suitable for framing. Tight binding.

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.
