Why We Love This

Hilary Knight collection, with his stamp of ownership and signature on front pastedown. First Edition. Oversized quarto and profuse illustrations in black and white. ISBN: 0396068774. The definitive and comprehensive text-and-photo book dealing with the career of the most acclaimed dancer ever to appear on stage and screen. Emphasizing Astaire's remarkable contribution to the musical film, the book gives the backgrounds and behind-the-scenes stories of all his Broadway, London, and Hollywood productions. 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.
