I have this small publication that I am working on, for a project, and I need some feedback on the "rag". I typically work with justified type blocks, but this time, it seems nice to go with just a left justified ragged right setting. I have gone through an evolution of 42 layouts at this point, and have attached two. The first is one that has a more unbalanced rag, while the second is verging on fully justified type blocks. Since I am not so familiar with how much "rag" is best, or how and where to balance and where to not, I would like some input from you guys. Anything that you have to say would be appreciated, thanks.
The PDF files are rather large, sorry, outlined the type to avoid problems. Also, just a side-note, in case you think I am crazy for choosing the colors that I did. This project is going to be printed on a recycled white (similar to antique white) stock, so the colors are rather nice in real life. I took out the color background, for, i was not sure it would display correctly on everyones screen.
