The type and grid session with Lorenzo proved really useful. Looking at how other people in the group had approached this helped me see where my design was weak. Also printing the actual layout out was invaluable as the font size(12 point) which had looked correct on the screen was actually too big. Also I did not know there was an hyphenation switch
This is the revised layout I have designed based on the feedback.
I saved the print settings as I found these slightly confusing.
Also to open a CS5.5 document in in design CS5 you have to export from CS5.5 as an .idml document.
