Beginning Scribus (Free PDF)


File Size: 11.58 Mb

Description
This book was originally intended as an aide memoire for use in the compilation and publication of a parish magazine. Gradually, though, it evolved from a basic list of DOs and DON’Ts into a more project-oriented piece that shows you how Scribus actually works.

This book is the end result. It offers a way into the world of professional desktop publishing for those who cannot afford the more celebrated commercial alternatives. It teaches you what you need to know in order to produce professional-looking printed documents and stunning, interactive digital magazines. It also provides a useful companion to Akkana Peck’s book Beginning Gimp.

It is aimed specifically at the desktop publishing newbie, those who want to learn more about open source desktop publishing, and those who cannot afford the prices of the top-ranking, commercial applications.

But it should also prove a valuable resource for impoverished higher education studentswho cannot afford the student rates for the commercial software being offered for graphic design courses. It will enable them to produce visually appealing, professional-looking documents for their coursework, even if they do not have the money to use Adobe Creative Suite or QuarkXPress.
