Although this is a fashion magazine layout the same general principles can be applied to create a fashion textbook. The use of image is key to generate interest and illustrate the point the author is trying to make- they are evocative and really add a sense of meaning to the text
Two aspects of this magazine cover that are really impressive are the typographical relationships and the way the image covers the masthead. The typographical relationship is contrasting, with serif for the masthead and main cover line about Emma Watson, while the rest of the cover lines are sans-serif. This almost creates a hierarchy of sorts, showing that the text in serif is most important.
