The first book on magazine sensation Holiday, which between 1946 and 1977 was one of the most exciting publications in the world. Renowned for its bold layouts, literary credibility, and ambitious choice of photographers and artists, Holiday portrayed the romance of travel like no other periodical. Some of the most celebrated writers of that time joined the magazine's roster of talent: Jack Kerouac, Ernest Hemingway, Graham Greene, Joan Didion, Truman Capote, Colette and E.B. White. Photographers and illustrators include: Henri Cartier-Bresson and Al Hirschfeld. A wonderful book for the cultured traveler. Pamela Fiori writes about the magazine's history, giving it context during the era of the jet age, world turbulence, and the rise of Madison Avenue advertising. Holiday was a vibrant original, inspiring travel magazines that followed and leaving glorious photography and art as well as thought-provoking journalism in its wake.
