Lena – Master Pages

anthro_aug 13

Out of 32 total pages of the August 2013 catalog for a clothing company called Anthropologie, I found five different types of pages. The first type of page is just a full page photo with no text or additional graphics, so I don’t think it counts as a “master page.” The other four page types consist of two styles, but each style is a mirrored pair, so the layout for each of the four pages is a different master page. In other words, master pages 1 and 2 are the same style, but the right-hand and left-hand pages of that style are opposites. Likewise, master pages 3 and 4 are the same style with right- and left-hand pages mirroring each other.

Master page 1 has a large photo in the upper right corner and a small photo in the bottom left corner, with text in the other two corners. This is used for the left page of a spread. Master page 2 – used on the right page of a spread – has a large photo in the upper left corner and a small photo in the bottom right corner with text in the other two corners. Master page 3 (left page of a spread) has a large photo on the left side of the page with a narrow column of text on the right, while master page 4 (right page of a spread) has a large photo on the right side with a narrow column of text on the left.
