I've worked on Laidout gradually over the last 3 years or so, kind of
in between various other art projects. Each bout of programming has
been just one little step that helps me make my cartoon books just a
little more easily.
Well, one day follows the next, and suddenly after a couple years,
there was Laidout with wacky impositioning and image warping. I never
really intended to spend so much time on it... I do tend to use Scribus
to make pdfs. No single program is going to do everthing right for
In any case, I look on with interest to see how the Scribus imposition
Summer of Code comes along. Mateusz! non-rectangular pages! It's the
future! If not that, might I suggest that the booklet mode double as a
vertically oriented booklet, i.e. a wall calendar?
