Uh, IMHO the eye candy ends at page 3 due to the decision to use
justification without hyphenation...
It might also help to use a grid system to put some structure and proportion
into all those boxes and screenshots.
But the page headers are nice.

Maybe he'll also accept a few hints for using Scribus:

* apply Extras->Hyphenation for justified text
* use properties palette's XYZ tab to make sure all headers start at the
same y-position
* activate View->Show Guides and drag guides from the horizontal and
vertical ruler area onto the page to help you align your boxes

Just my ? 0,02 (couldn't resist :-) )
