Two-Page Spreads

A common aspect of publication layout design is the two-page spread, or a set of pages viewed together. Spreads are often used as a visually interesting introduction to an article in magazines, with the layout designed to have the two pages working as a unified whole. It is this specific type of spread which we’ll explore in this chapter.
