    Spread page layout example


    REGISTER TO REMOVE ADS


    Awhile back i bumped into some site with a great example of a spread page layout example. It had all the standard measurements of the gutters, size of the margins and everything . Has anyone also seen this? if you've found one, or you know of one, could kindly post the link?
    I normally do illustrative graphic design, but now I'm asked to design a spread. Your time and help would mean so very much to me. and measurements in inches perefably.

    Right, follow this: Image:Van de Graaf canon in book design.svg - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    On a page ratio 2:3 draw from top left to bottom right, bottom right to top centre, top centre to bottom left, bottom left to top right. The draw from the crossing point of bottom right to top centre and bottom left to top right straight up to the top of the page, then straight to the same crossing point on the other side. Where this new line intersects draw out the red box.

    Perfect.

    Btw, the 2:3 ratio is for each of the two individual (left and right) pages, not the two pages as a whole.

    This is of course if you want to go with standard measurements. It mightyly depends what you have to work with text/image wise

    i couldnt find it, so i decided to ask here. that link was so nice too, it had the layouts examples of a few popular magazines, and on top of the magazine page were measurements of the margins, and image size on the page and all of that. wish i could share it.
