The one word I chose was Macabre. From this I based the magazine on ‘Macabre’, ‘Danse Macabre’ and ‘The Black Death’. Below are mock ups of the final spreads.
Part One is the main extract; focusing on Macabre, Danse Macabre and Edgar Allan Poe.
Part Two is the history of the Black Death. The concept of the smaller size is based upon the decrease of the population during the epidemic (population decreased by a third, so a third was taken off the original measurements).
