Archaeology Odyssey was a bimonthly magazine designed by AURAS Design for almost 10 years. It has a basic construction, with a cover, TOC, front and back departments, and a feature well. We're posting the native 60-page Quark document of the final issue for you to download. In it you'll see how we've set up the master pages and the style sheets, and maybe it will give you some ideas for your own Quark magazine templates.
