Another Travel Magazine

I just received a gratis copy of a new, glossy travel magazine; it’s one of the perks of the blog. This new contender reminded me of all of the ambitious, and failed, travel magazines that have been unable to sustain a readership and have quietly disappeared over the years. Maybe the publishers should go back to some of the travel periodicals that demonstrated amazing staying power. Travel , which was published between 1902 and 2003 was just that kind of magazine. The marvelous graphic artwork attracted readers, and more importantly subscribers for over a century. Could be a lesson there even in the internet age.

    What fabulous covers! Makes me want to rush out and look for back issues.

  2. These covers are to die for. I would pay any amount of money for the February 1933 issue!!

    Thanks for sharing these. Best. Elliott (elliottingotham.wordpress.com)
