Glossary Magazine Layout / Term


This is a a vertical block of content positioned on the page. Margins flank the sides of columns to give them space or “breathing room and are often separated by gutters.

Column formatting of a page’s text is generally considered to improve the readability of the text on the page, by providing shorter lines of running horizontal text to follow. Columns also allow text to not appear as dense and time-consuming as it may actually be. Newspapers often use this technique.
