The IDSGN Blog details a lecture given by Jason Santa Maria (a video is available at the bottom of the page) about applying magazine spread design sensibilities to the web:

If you're looking for some good inspiration for your spreads, check out this page on Best Design Options.

Lastly (and kinda unrelated), The Economist has an article about how the letterpress and its mechanical aesthetics have been (partly) misapplied in the digital age: Letterpress Revived.
