Why We Love This

Hilary Knight collection. Second Edition. Oversized quarto, and profuse illustrations in color and black-and-white. A comprehensive and indispensable reference provides sumptuously illustrated examples of midcentury stage design, organized by nation, alongside essays chronicling the evolution of stage design and identifying notable figures in each of the 23 countries included. 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.
