This cover has approximately 8 layers all overlapping each other. The main image partly covers the masthead because the magazine is well known so they can get away with it. The main image is of muse front man Matt Bellamy, showing that the main artical is about him/ his band. He is placed to the right of the page allowing more space for text, as this cover has a lot. The background is blue, making it colorful and attractive to the viewer.
