NABU Korbach

Reporter: Markus Grosche

Date: January, 2014


I made an 80-page brochure for the 75th anniversary of a nature conservation group in Germany - NABU Korbach - with Scribus and Inkscape. It was the first project of this size for me. Before that I only used Scribus for fliers. Because of many, partly two-sided, pictures I eventually had to upgrade my pc from 2 to 4gb of RAM. I am very satisfied with Scribus and the printing house had no problems with the Scribus-generated PDF.
