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?
