COMMENT: Grids are used by designers and paste-up artists for laying out magazines and books, where the page size, type area and general layout remain the same for each page. The designer will prepare a master grid, showing the basic proportions of the page, with its trim size, type area, headlines, folio positions, margins, etc., and this is used when pasting up each page.
