“The Best Travel Magazine that Ever Was’ by Pamela Fiori

February 17, 2022 @ 6:00 PM

Pamela Fiori, Holiday Magazine

At Holiday magazine’s peak, urbane editor Ted Patrick and visionary art director Frank Zachary invited postwar America to see and read about the world. On the journey, readers were captivated by the periodical’s renowned roster of talent. Some of the most celebrated writing by Jack Kerouac, Ernest Hemingway, Graham Greene, Joan Didion, Truman Capote, Colette, and E. B. White (his piece “Here Is New York” was commissioned for Holiday in 1949) first appeared in its pages. And the notoriety of the photographers who shot the covers and stories for the magazine rivaled that of the writers: Henri Cartier-Bresson documenting a breathtaking Paris, Slim Aarons capturing the allure of world travel; and Al Hirschfield and Ludwig Bemelmans contributing show-stopping illustrations of places and personages. Holiday: The Best Travel Magazine that Ever Was, written by acclaimed journalist and author Pamela Fiori, is the first book on the legendary magazine capturing its history between 1946 and 1977, during a golden age of publishing. Renowned for its bold layouts, literary credibility, and ambitious choice of photographers and artists, Holiday depicted the romance of travel like no other periodical.
