'It is written in English, but its heart French'
The international travel and style review lets us imagine the holidays of our dreams. Relaunched by Paris-based creative director Franck Durand in 2014 after a 37-year hiatus, Holiday is a modern classic built on its '50s heyday.
This issue is devoted to Cuba: 'At first glance, Cuba is an island like any other, an expanse of land surrounded by water, but it is actually a place like no other, with its unique history, people, beauty and scars. Since its mysteries and truths can only be grasped from the inside, the Cuban writers Leonardo Padura, Wendy Guerra and Karla Suárez have made their voices heard in this issue of Holiday, while the reporter Ed Augustin set out to encounter the Cuban people. Among the other articles are the story of the Buena Vista Social Club as told by an insider and an ode to Agnès Varda’s documentary Salut Les Cubains.'
