And it’s out of the cage

We’re delighted to finally take the wraps off the first issue of Libre Graphics Magazine.

Download the PDF here. Note that this is the layout file for print and is rather heavy (120mb). However, this means that you can zoom in to see the tiny details inside the pictures, in all their gorgeous 300dpi glory! We’ll be updating this post with a lighter version for screen reading.

We will be telling you a lot more about the production process and our next steps — including how you can order your own paper copy! — but now, we’re rather exhausted. Hence, Libre Graphics Magazine team will now crash due to signal #11.

    Scribus was indeed used to create the PDF files; however, we used pdftk ( to merge our various PDF files into one final file. That’s probably the reason behing the PDF Producer tag not being Scribus.
    This process is because our Scribus working files tend to get quite big, and so we divide the layout into smaller Scribus files, joining the output in the end with one simple command:
    pdftk *.pdf cat output final_big_file.pdf
