Holiday in Africa

April 1958
When was the last time you picked up a travel magazine, or any magazine for that matter, with any form of art other than photography on the cover? Well, back in the day, illustrations were clearly the way to draw people into your issue, and the travel magazine Holiday, published between 1928 and 1977 had some pretty darn good illustrated covers. This one, done by George Giusti, is clearly a favorite of mine, but so is the second one from the West Indies....
February 1949
You can see even more lovely covers from this magazine here.
