Road Trip Propaganda at Its Best

The American Automotive Association pumped out Holiday Magazine to encourage Americans to set out on the country's new interstates in their fancy new cars.  After the war, Curtis Publishing took over and continued to do the same.  It's kind of like a Michelin Guide for the US of A without restaurant rankings and with more articles by Ernest Hemingway.  (We picked up the Wisconsin issue, above, in Maine, as well as North Carolina, below. Both are amazing).


  1. happy you reminded me of these! I'm going to have to start my quest for collecting them. My blog is titled, Holiday, so I thought it was only fitting to mention your post on my blog. Thank you! xo

    Did you see the issue of Holiday on the shelf of Anna Draper's coffee table in tonight's Mad Men? Did you guys bring it to them? :-)
