Hilary Knight collection, with his stamp of ownership and signature on front pastedown. First Edition. Oversized quarto and over 200 black and white illustrations. ISBN: 0385247419. Vanity Fair's editor at large Sarah Giles interviews those who knew Fred Astaire best--his daughter, Ava; Audrey Hepburn; Rudolf Nureyev; Douglas Fairbanks, Jr.; Ginger Rogers; Hermes Pan; Roddy McDowall; and many others. In this intensely personal book, his closest friends reminisce about the Fred they knew. 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.
