Why We Love This

Hilary Knight collection, with his stamp of ownership and signature on front pastedown. First US Edition. Oversized quarto and 185 black and white illustrations. ISBN: 0060153199. An excellent study on Marlene Dietrich that covers her career but also reinterprets her in human terms. This book reassesses her talents against the backdrop of her times creating a very human look at the star, and a critical and social study of her. Fully illustrated with 185 photographs and an extensive and well-researched text, Dietrich makes an excellent addition to the library of any fan of the actress or of film in general. 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.
