Love Letter to Arizona: The Story of Arizona Highways
Arizona Highways magazine was born in the early 1920s. As automobiles emerged as the preferred mode of transportation in the U.S., a handful of states throughout the country developed magazines to entice motorists to travel newly developed roads. These magazines provide a unique resource for examining how the automobile changed the history of travel and helped to shape identities of place in America. None date as far back or have featured the iconic photography that has made Arizona Highways a national treasure. Dozens of great photographers including photography legend Ansel Adams, landscape photographers Josef Muench and Carlos Elmer, and Pulitzer Prize winner Jack Dykinga were featured. Hear the stories behind the glorious pages of Arizona Highways, a publication that has captured the imagination of the nation and the world for nearly a century.
