This was brought to my attention by an artist who noticed the Harry Potter book was flipped in China. It got me thinking about magnetic momentum (see Day 64) again, and the way we read a composition.

Understanding how people read a composition is fascinating stuff and we can apply it to our masterpiece if we want to create more movement. Let’s check out some great examples and see if we can recreate something or our own!
