Pages_Les édifices antiques de Rome - Archived Posted on 11/19/202009/13/2021 The three spreads I chose reflect the main structure of this book. The first one seen above is a typical illustration of a chapter’s cover page. On one side there is a corresponding text to the drawing on the other side. This gives us an overview what’s going to be explained in this chapter. Either there is only one page with a picture of the discussed topic or there is a double page with bigger drawings or plans. The second extract is showing the most often used layout for a double page. On one side there is the descriptive text and on the other one there are the corresponding pictures. I’ve been astonished by the precision the drawings werde made with. The measurements and the scales of the plans are very small, but they were made amazingly accurate. This last choice of two spreads showing a big drawing and a ground plan each drawn over a double page is my favorite one. In my opinion big and accurate illustrations corresponding to the analytic text are essential for this type of book. Just because I value this important aspect so much, I took the liberty of taking two examples to underline its importance.
