A magazine is supposed to keep the readers attention by interrupting reading-text with quotes, images, large titles, white spaces. In this issue of the zweikommasieben magazine we did the opposite: we split the magazine into four sections: images, quotes, texts and ads. The contents of each section are linked to each other with a numeric system. This enables the reader to directly compare e.g. quotes from various artists in different interviews.
