Why We Love This

Hilary Knight collection, with his stamp of ownership. First Edition. Oversized folio and pervasive duotone illustrations. ISBN: 1858942497. Contains graphic imagery. Combining Ruven Afandor's elegant, erotic portraits and nudes of men with a selection of his opulent still-life tableaux that have been inspired by European painting, this is a sumptuous book that revels in the sensuous and the beautiful. Sombra will appeal to collectors of fine art photography books as well as to connoisseurs of erotic iconography of the male figure. 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.
