History and profileEdit

Holiday was started in 1946.[1] The magazine had its headquarters in Sharon Hill, Pennsylvania.[1] With the magazine circulation suffering in the 1970s, Curtis sold Holiday to the publisher of Travel, a competing magazine. The two publications merged[2] to form Travel Holiday.

Holiday was relaunched in April 2014[3] by the Atelier Franck Durand, a Paris-based art direction studio, with Marc Beaugé as editor in chief and Franck Durand[4] as creative director. The magazine is a bi-annual, conceived in Paris and written in English. Its official website mentions an upcoming café [5] and clothing line.

The issue n°373 of Holiday Magazine, first issue since the relaunch, was dedicated to the year 1969 and Ibiza.[6]

The issue n°373 includes contributions from photographers Josh Olins,[7] Karim Sadli and Mark Peckmezian, a short novel about Ibiza by novelist Arthur Dreyfus, a story on Inez van Lamsweerde and Vinoodh Matadin's New York loft, and the cover features a chosen fragment of Remed's painting "Leonogone".
