Hi Bob,

Recently, my father finished his biography which he wrote in a word 
processor and printed and collected the photos in several folders. I 
would like to make the whole thing up into several books using Scribus.

So I wonder if there are many photos in your book and if Scribus really 
handles 300 pages in one file. Many folks here say it's better to split 
it up. As my father's collection consists of time sections and folders 
anyway, it will be easy to make several books out of it, and I intend to 
make different styles according to epoque etc. But I would be interested 
what you would consider the max number of pages for a book.
