Those all look exactly like what I am thinking of. Basically, just decent work showing off some
features. I guess seeing one of those pages loaded into Scribus as a screenshot would be nice. I
like the Q4 2010 Page 8 with its open source message too. In the end, the screenshots aren't going
to be needed in much higher quality than what you have on those pages.. its to give a flavour of
what's possible as the narrative runs through.

If the posters you mention have had the bleed settings, crop marks etc used, they might be useful to
have a screenshot of.
