Some elements of this text to consider:

  • The appealing composition of the text: the winding river from bottom left up to the middle of the cover, the S-curve of the train, the majestic mountains in the background
  • How the text fits perfectly into the composition – the main text sitting above and below the mountains and the secondary text placed next to the river
  • The bright red note on the top left “Free Map” gives consumers another reason to purchase the magazine.
