HASH(0x9d1d724c) out of 5 stars Only the bare basics April 11 2011
By David B. Gilmore - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I was looking for an up to date publication on Scribus to use for training my staff.
I found this product to be very narrow in substance and slanted more toward producing a book and very little else.
The price for this book is way out of line when compared with other like publications. $15-$20 USD would be more appropriate.
I could recommend it as an addendum or chapter addition to another book but not as a stand alone.
On a positive note, the graphic screen shots were very nice.

HASH(0x9d1d54f8) out of 5 stars Using Free Scribus Software to Create Professional Presentations July 10 2011
By Kym Kirk - Published on
Format: Paperback
The book Using Free Scribus Software to Create Professional Presentations delivers on its promise. This book is very detailed and takes you through the process of developing a profession book design cover in one sitting. The easy to follow step by step instructions take you from being a novice to achieving results in no time at all.

I found the examples of each step very helpful including the links to the various software that compliments the program.

The book itself is only 69 pages. Once you download and setup the free software, Alice and Gang Chen have you following the examples in their book to achieve exactly the same outcomes with your book design.

To sum up - I found the book easy to understand and expertly written.

HASH(0x9d1d6834) out of 5 stars Not Worth the Price Oct. 29 2013

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
56 pages of information - addresses one thing - creating a cover. Does not get into how to use Scribus Software to any degree.
HASH(0x9d1d5360) out of 5 stars A good book for learing Scribus Aug. 16 2011
By dksamuel - Published on
Format: Paperback
Exceptionally well written, You will feel comfortable working in Scribus with this book by your side, It will teach you the rules of the game and help you expand your creativity. This book helped me a lot to learn about Scribus and I recommend it for you.
Secondly as Scribus is open sourced, it provides a great platform for free DTP of Asian languages, It lis time we all started using Scribus and this book is an important milestone in this direction.
The color pictures used and the files for practice ad value to the text. A lot of good illustrations have been provided. I am sure you will like this book as I do, It is a very good investment
