The next contents page I have analysed is from Word, which is also another magazine that is very recognisable with the puplic. They use a particular layout in the contents page seperating topics into sections. They also make subheadings stand out so it is easier for the audience to read and easier for them to find what they are looking for. You can also see that there is lots of pictures used for what stories the magazine contains, this is common in magazines. The original colour is red and orange, the red is bold stands out and attracts hte reader. There is a picture of an editor and a letter from the editor which is common on contents pages in magazines. There are numbered pages showing what page a certain topic is on, however the numbers on the contents page is not in chronological order, this is common convention in magazines. It keeps things that are to do with each other together. At the side of the page you can see the credits for the magazine, this is not common for magazines.
