What is a good CMS to create innovative 'magazine' style pages with text and photos?

For a project, I'm looking for a content management system that will allow me to create pages of text and photos with a unique, fresh layout for each page, like a magazine.
I'm not looking to just position photos around text, like you can already do in Wordpress or Squarespace. I mean creating boxouts, columns of text with photos within the columns, text in sections, differently-sized photos positioned around the page, etc. Something like Blurb's BookSmart software or Indesign, but for web pages instead of paper ones.
Ideally the CMS would have built-in templates, produce clean code, drag and drop, requiring zero (or minimal) coding, and be a web service that doesn't require installation/upgrades. And, of course, as cheap as possible.
Any ideas, or am I dreaming?
