    I moved away from publication designing quite about 20 years ago - so, I'm not that familiar with books on the topic. The "design that works" series from Rockport is usually pretty good and provides a good overview. I know that Graphis has published a magazine design annual in the past. There are some decent books out there on "page design" and "page layout." Maybe an Amazon or Google search will help you there. You might check out the resources of the Society of Publication Designers. I know they print an annual. Their site may suggest some other sources of information.

      This is what I was looking for, I don't know how to phrase what I meant better. Perhaps, these were for fun. Could you tell me if they are successful in using design elements like negative space, font,...
