This magazines contents is pictorial. There is one photo that takes up half of the page, which was on the cover, from being a scaled up image, to a blown up one on the contents shows the importance of the article to the magazine. Also there are lots of other pictures which all have captions and page numbers so that the reader knows what page to go to, to find that article or story. This follows the house style from the cover. The use of typefaces, the reversed out text for the category headlines, also the masthead form the cover has also been used. The colours red, black and white have been used which again goes back to the cover. As an extra they have added a small article from the editor. This is beside were the contents is so it is noticeable to the reader. There us a picture of the editor as another visual. The contents is below the big picture and has been set into small columns. This is split up with the odd picture between, this supplements the pictorial reader and the more textual reader all together. KERRANG!
This magazines contents is more textual, than pictorial although it does feature some pictures, it is more text orientated. The contents is set out in columns but is bordering a picture. This fits in with the high lighting the important bits of the magazine. There us a continuation of the house style although it is not obvious. The house style has been based upon the masthead which has again been used here in the header of the contents. The red, white and black are strong colours and are clear to read. There are headlines to each different section of the magazine so it is easy to find the articles. This would be more for the textual reader as under each heading there us a one line description of what is in that article/ story. Q Magazine
This contents page is straight forward. There is no big header saying ‘contents’ , instead it states ‘what’s inside’ , which what a contents page does, but this is a different way of putting it so it doesn’t look like any other music magazine. The contents is set out in one big column stretched down the left hand side of the page. The house style is enforced by the colours of the masthead on the cover. It is simple and straight to the point. There is only headings for the pages which are in red and stand out from the rest of the text on the page. The numbers are in black which contrasts with the red. The font is basic, simple, Arial, small font. The rest of the page is the first article of the magazine which is again straight to the point. This is covered with a big photo and the text is reversed out over the photo so that they don’t clash. NME Magazine
