Between 1946 and 1977, Holiday was one of the most exciting magazines in the United States. Renowned for its bold layout, literary credibility, and ambitious choice of photographers, Holiday portrayed the world like no other periodical. The premise was simple: send a writer and photographer to a specific location and ask them to capture their vision of the place without constraints of style, length or budget. Some of the most celebrated writing by Graham Greene, Joan Didion, Jack Kerouac and Truman Capote first appeared in the pages of Holiday. At the peak of its acclaim, the magazine had more than a million subscribers.

In 2014, after a thirty-seven year hiatus, Holiday returned at the behest of Parisian art director Franck Durand. This new Holiday remains faithful to the essence, aesthetic and sense of journalistic adventure of its forebear, but in a format that also celebrates fashion. Editorials shot by industry-leading photographers, and emerging talents alike, coexist beautifully with the work of today's top literary voices. And true to its original concept, Holiday still sends contributors afield to produce a portrait of place that is at once intimate and timeless.

For Issue 381 Holiday Magazine heads to Israel-or, more specifically, Jerusalem. We sent the photographers Alasdair McLellan, Hill & Aubrey and Tom Johnson off to wander the millenary alleys of the thrice-holy city. Their perspectives are supplemented by images viewed through the lens of Josh Olins, Olivier Kervern, Mark Peckmezian, Philippe Lacombe-and Matthieu Salvaing, who captures the European-Ottoman allure of the American Colony hotel.

On the writing front, Thomas Chatterton Williams pens his first impressions of a city that is a world unto itself; Anthony Van Den Bossche tells the strange story of the immovable ladder at the Church of the Holy Sepulchre; Arthur Dreyfus investigates the mysteries of Jerusalem syndrome, and François Blet discusses history and food with the eminent historian Vincent Lemire and the chef Eyal Shani respectively. And Pamela Fiori, a contributor to the original Holiday back in the 1960s, details her memories of the golden age of a magazine that has retained its free and hedonistic ethos.

Bi-annual publication, based in Paris. Softcover, 280 pages.
