I'm typesetting a book which contains full page illustrations. Sometimes the illustrations fall in between the end of one chapter and the start of another:
Two consecutive 2-page spreads: ______ ______ |p.1 || p.2| | || | Page 1: End of a chapter. Text fills perhaps half of the page. | || | Page 2: Full page illustration. |______||______| Page 3: Start of a chapter, including chapter heading. ______ ______ Page 4: Continued chapter. |p.3 || p.4| | || | | || | |______||______|
This layout seems bring some confusion when the reader reaches the end of page 1 (a half-full page), only to find an illustration on the next page.
Is this acceptable typesetting, if not, what should be changed to rectify the issue?
