HOLIDAY magazine & Frank Zachary

Vanity Fair are celebrating HOLIDAY magazine and Searle gets a brief mention, quoted here before, on the subject of the magazine's legendary art director Frank Zachary.  It's an interesting read of the 'Mad Men'-like heyday of travel magazines, high profile article writers and reportage photography/illustration. There's also a slideshow of classic Holiday covers.

 Zachary at Town & Country Magazine in 1984 (he apparently preferred to be photographed leaning!)

Also focused on is Zachary's famously well connected address book.  The page that may contain Searle isn't available but we can see illustrators Rowland Emett and Al Hirschfeld were included.
