# Grids for A4 paper (golden ratio) [closed]

I'm about to construct the most important document of my life - my Ph.D. thesis. A while back I came across this for web design:

Grids are Good

Is there anything similar for typesetting A4 papers? Preferably that adheres to the golden ratio. I want my thesis to be as amazing as possible.

The `layaureo` package sets the page parameters based on the golden ratio. Unfortunately, it's documented only in Italian, but `\usepackage[binding=4mm]{layaureo}` should be all you need (the `binding` option is not required, of course) – egreg Jun 17 '12 at 14:38
The `memoir` manual has some samples of textblock constructions. But... I would recommend you not to use A4 as the final size. – Jellby Jun 17 '12 at 16:36
