Hilary Knight collection, with his stamp of ownership on front pastedown. First Edition. Oversized folio and profuse illustrations in black and white and color. ISBN: 0374232008. Monograph covering 30 years of Avedon's work, containing some of the artist's most iconic photographs. Published concurrently with the opening of a retrospective exhibition at The Metropolitan Museum of Art. 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.
