Revamped Conde Nast Traveler features The Henry Ford

Dearborn’s Henry Ford Museum and Greenfield Village will be highlighted in the March issue of Conde Nast Traveler. The issue marks the debut of the travel magazine’s redesign.

“A redesign to us means changing not only the look of the pages but the way we find and tell stories in order to reclaim that element of surprise,” writes Conde Nast’s Pilar Guzman in her editor’s letter.

She says the goal of the revamp is to give a more personal look at travel and offer more to readers than they would find with a standard Google image search.

“We are less interested in any ‘definitive guide’ than we are in the very specific adventures of discerning travelers,” she says.

As examples, she cites a piece on Rio de Janeiro by Simon Romero, who heads the New York Times’ Brazil bureau, and photographer Dewey Nicks’ visit to The Henry Ford in Dearborn.

The Henry Ford pictorial features photos shot last summer of the museum and Greenfield Village, and includes photos of historical baseball games, buildings and, of course, vintage cars.

The Henry Ford President Patricia Mooradian says the feature is confirmation of the attraction’s significance.

“We hope readers are inspired to make a trip to Michigan to visit The Henry Ford,” she says, “and to see all that Metro Detroit has to offer.”
