Worth Reading: Holiday Magazine

If you haven't already heard, you should know that Holiday magazine is back.

The legendary travel magazine has been out of print for 37 years, and there's never been anything else quite like it. Holiday was known for hiring the best writers and photographers, and giving them editorial freedom and generous budgets. With contributors like Slim Aarons, Henri Cartier-Bresson, Ernest Hemingway, and John Steinbeck, Holiday published truly interesting pieces. 

Holiday is where Joan Didion's "Notes from a Native Daughter" was first published. And luckily for anyone who's ever read it, Holiday commissioned E.B. White's essay "Here is New York." Clearly the standards at the magazine were high. 

No longer the great American travel magazine, the new incarnation comes from Paris, but is written in English. The team behind Holiday's revival are aiming to keep the visual and editorial standards high, and to stay true to the original magazine's way of doing things. Their first issue, which came out in March, indicates that the magazine is in good hands.
