Submission + - The WNBR book published - using open source tools - 160 pages 250 photographs (naktiv.net)

richinud writes: ""The WNBR book is officially published! We used open-source tools on SuSe Linux; gvim for the text, firefox, the gimp and imageMagick for the images, and Scribus for the DTP, to produce a mainstream compact publication with full colour images. This is a clear demonstration of how much open-source tools can contribute to the traditional and paper-based publishing world.

From the back cover: The World Naked Bike Ride is a global protest against oil dependency and urban pollution, promoting greater cycling safety on our roads, and encouraging body freedom for everyone. This book visually describes the environmental awareness event, the history of how it started, the people who take part, and the motivations behind this very public demonstration."
