Spread Sketching

Here are six iterations of a spread with Baskerville's trademark upper case Q. (working as a diagram, although there will be more done on other letterforms. I feel that the strongest layout designs are the three on the right side. I know I want the letterform to be large and advert your attention to it immediately, making the body text a secondary element. Also I want the verso and recto sides working together on this spread. One thing I wasn't sure about when working on the spreadsheet grid was the center "gutter" section between the two separate pages. Note that in my sketches I acted as though the spread was already open and this is how it would be viewed & I didn't account for the binding.
