In a printed technical publication, I need to present a large double-pages illustration on the same double-page than its explanatory paragraph. Doing so, I had to insert a page break at the end of the preceding paragraph, and most of the previous double page gets empty...
Is there any typographic character which would mean "this page [or this part of the page] is intentionally left empty" ? I used to see some kind of stars in older novels. Is there any good practice for this ?
EDIT (Typographic terms)
I retrieved the precise terms:
- Asterisk * (as pointed out by Lauren Ipsum) [alt+42] [U+002A]
- Asterism: ⁂ a centered line of usually three asterisks (a dinkus), OR a centered triangle made of 3 or 4 asterisks [alt+2042] [U+2042]
So, does it match my needs only in english? Or is there a better solution?
EDIT (to answers)
Thanks for the answers I received so far (Unknowndomain, Scott & Lauren Ipsum). However, the three of you would not worry that much about a blank page (with the exception of a legal document which could lead to legal issues if some content is actually missing or added illegally onto the blank page). However, I think a full blank page may indeed break the document's flow and the reader's perception of hierarchy : a blank page would mean a change of a main section of the document. Don't you agree ?
So, I'm still worried :)
