Selling line Barcode Dateline Use of serif which is seen as a more traditional and classic and reflects the target audience . The audience are expected to know who the artists are which shows the magazine has a clear idea of who the target audience is. Picture of choir boys in black, a contrast from the white, helps them to stand out on the front cover
  3. 3. Use of house style on heading of contents page, it’s a repeat of the masthead on the front but smaller. Sticking with colour scheme from front cover.
