So I’m a book designer/layout artist the past 24 or so years. I’ve mostly used QuarkXPress and InDesign, but I’ve familiarized myself with Scribus version 1.4.4.
Over the last 7 or 8 years my clients have pretty exclusively been self-publishers. So I got to thinking that a book of both ruminations and making book design choices, as well as how-to tutorials for self-publishers to design and lay out their own books might be in order. And as self-publishers very often work on shoestring budgets, what better software than open source Scribus.
I started with version 1.4.4, taking screenshots. Then I put the project down, as I got busy woring on books. I’m now back to having time to write this book. And i’m thinking that, ideally, I want to use the latest version of Scribes. Well, 1.5 is not stable, I’m told. I wonder when 1.6 will be ready and whether it’ll be dfferent enough to warrant waiting for it, rather than writing the book using 1.4.4 or 1.5 for screenshots and step-by-steps?
