I think these layouts are a great example of how to make pages graphic heavy, and yet integrate text very well. However, where the most intense graphic elements are, my eye usually goes the wrong way across the page (i.e. right to left)
This images shows the pages of this fanzine. I like this one and how the pages are different sizes, this is because it makes it more fun to look at and to read, same with the page colours being different aswell, it gives the reader something new to look at.
