  2. 2. The image of the artist is used to fill the whole cover instead of an image with a block coloured background Bold ‘Billboard’ masthead used to show which magazine it is. This is the main cover line you can tell it is this as it stands out. Different fonts used to emphasise the writing and make the cover more exciting. Barcode used on the cover to scan.
