Zachary's deputy art director in the early 1970s at Travel & Leisure was Norman Hotz. After a year at the magazine, Zachary left to become editor of Town and Country, and Hotz took over as art director. Hotz's award-winning stint at T&L was followed by a distinguised career redesigning and art directing numerous other magazines, and he continues as a consulting art director for cartoons at Reader's Digest.
Hotz shared with SPD his memories of working with Zachary at Travel & Leisure. We also have a never-before collected set of all 10 of Zachary's Travel & Leisure covers.
This is the first part of a two-part remembrance by Hotz of his years at T&L. Stay tuned for part two in the near future. The interviews with Hotz were compiled and edited by Linda Rubes.
