I really like this spread because it's simple and elegant while being creative and different, catching the viewer's eye. The shapes are enticing and interesting. This spread could have easily been very boring, but the designer does a great job at staying away from that. I would make the text bigger and the title more decorative and maybe incorporate some text along the shapes
This is a unique table of contents. There is a lot of white negative space, but I think it works in this case. I like the pictures and I like that the article/information is coming out of the pictures vertically/slanted. I think this is an interesting way to present a table of contents. I think it was a good idea to make the article titles in red.
