Scribus – New Zealand book

From Marcus Holland-Moritz, a stunning example of outstanding design chops coupled with open source software – and a New Zealand reference (my home) to boot:

New Zealand Book, made with Scribus and more...

In the author’s own words:

“I’ve put several months of work into this project. It features about 200 out of the 15,000 photos I took during my five weeks “down under” along with some anecdotes about my journey across the two islands of New Zealand.

The book was created exclusively using free and open source software. It is itself available under a Creative Commons CC-BY-NC-ND license.”

 

As I put it in my other entry about Scribus, I know of people who couldn’t assemble anything anywhere near this good with full access to a megabucks Adobe CS license.

The book may be purchased at: http://www.blurb.com/bookstore/detail/1168184 – and I might just purchase a copy myself. I love open source!
