Generally the text is composed in a generous and spacious fashion over a whole page allowing the content to be read without any major difficulties. In more detail one can observe that yet the efficient justified or block structure is applied in order to arrange the content. In Addition to the mentioned clarity headings are precisely distinguishable from the default text as it is aligned to the centre as well as being kept strictly in capital letters. But there is another level of detail to be found in the headings by the use of different font sizes in the same title giving the single words more or less annotated importance. The default text is in general also kept in a rather larger font size nodding towards the defensive and rare use of actual full texts in Rubens’ work Palazzi di Genova. The few occasions where an illustration is accompanying textual content and not the other way around it appears in form of a decorated first letter of a chapter but still in a rather conservative matter not really disturbing the otherwise clear words. Actually most of the text can be observed in the large number of architectural drawings detailing the different palaces Rubens visited in Genua during his stay in Italy. It is therefore apparent that these illustrations make up the main part of the book taking diverse forms of presentation looped in repetition for each palace like a drawing of the main facade or a cut through the building. According to the explicitly documentary style of the book in terms of spreading the shapes and forms of the Palazzi di Genova to the rest of Europe the drawings use up at least a full-page sometimes it may even be a double-page for a couple larger buildings. The illustrations are indexed by a number allowing a quicker way of browsing the book for the content or drawing in question.
