The double page spread is the main unit of design for book and magazine layouts, left and right margins become inside and outside margins.

Multicolumn grids provide flexible formats for publications that use a mix of text and illustrations. Zones for different kinds of content should be created within these grids. A text of image can take up a single column or it can fill several, not all of the space needs to be filled.
