The Magazine/ The neverending story of Holiday

The story goes back in 1946, during the aviation times. As transcontinental flights, luxury hotels, vacation packages, and color photography were on the rise, Ted Patrick and revolutionary art director Frank Zachary invented what is considered for many the best travel magazine ever printed. Having recruited the world’s A-class talent, including William Faulkner, Truman Capote, Joan Didion, Edward Steichen, Henri Cartier-Bresson, Milton Glaser and Slim Aarons to name a few, Holiday’s oversized pages were as unique as ever. The monthly magazine became the American travel bible, offering unique travelogues from around a very jet-set globe.

Today, Holiday is having its comeback. For Autumn/Winter 2015 the great midcentury travel magazine published another issue for it’s second act, under Franck Durand’s management. The creative director who has worked with Isabel Marant and Giuseppe Zanotti and is the partner of Emmanuelle Alt of Vogue Paris, is Holiday‘s guardian in the digital times.
