Yea! Holiday magazine is coming back! Back when I was an intern in the magazine world I was sent to the original Gallagher’s vintage magazine store to pick up old issues of Holiday and Fortune, GQ, Vogue, Harper’s Bazaar, and if I was lucky maybe I’d find an issue of Flair. That was a wonderful time. My art director seemed to just know that I would love Gallagher’s and that I would pick out great stuff.
What I loved about Holiday was their graphic covers, beautiful typography and amazing contributing writers. It is hard to find such a well designed and luxurious travel magazine these days.
In the Times today there is a piece about Holiday magazine coming back and I couldn’t be happier. The new magazine will be published in Paris with Franck Durand at the helm. The original Holiday magazine closed in 1977 after 372 beautiful issues. Mr. Durand starts the new Holiday at issue number 373.
Here is a selection of old Holiday covers.
