American writer and artist Hilary Knight illustrated more that 50 books and authored nine. He became best known as the illustrator for Kay Thompson's Eloise series and also created original artwork for a variety of clients including those that produced greeting cards, fashion advertisements, record albums and posters for Broadway musicals. Early in his career, Knight painted murals in private homes and entered the field of magazine illustration starting with Mademoiselle in 1952, followed by House & Garden, Gourmet, McCalls, and Woman's Home Companion among others. Chi'Lin and the Chinese Unicorn were characters from an ultimately unrealized children's book Knight conceived with his mother, Katharine Sturges Knight.
