Scribus Open-Source Desktop Publishing
Scribus Open-Source Desktop Publishing
by Christoph Schäfer
Edition: Paperback

4.0 out of 5 stars Clarifying a complex subject, 3 Mar. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
There aren't too many books about Scribus. As a long-time QuarkXPress user, I wanted one to help me understand the differences and get me into a new comfort zone. I've needed a magnifying glass to check some of the small screenshots, but generally speaking, the book is a winner.

These books are well laid out, well written and easy to read. Good value for anyone getting to grips with a new technical subject.

4.0 out of 5 stars Bought on behalf of a friend, 3 Mar. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
She wanted a small inexpensive high-quality compact digital camera with an optical viewfinder. This filled the bill. She's very pleased with it. A number of my friends use the same model and are delighted.

4.0 out of 5 stars science fiction with a heart, 17 Feb. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is a long book that grows more intriguing with every chapter. It's full of groundbreaking science and technology, but also rich in human relationships and pulsing with danger. I hope more of this fine author's books are translated into English.

5.0 out of 5 stars Simple and brilliant, 30 Dec. 2013

This appears to have been posted in the Far East, so it took some time to arrive. It is small, secure and a pleasure to use with my iPad mini.

3.0 out of 5 stars Does the job, 23 Dec. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I bought this to scan some slides dating from the 1950s. It did a perfectly fine job, while being a little less than easy to use. Considering the low price, it's a bargain.

These airline bags have been used successfully several times now. They're capacious and handy but they won't stand up on their own.

4.0 out of 5 stars Powerful but with an inaccurate gauge, 23 Dec. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This pump works well. It screws onto the tyre valve, which is why I bought it (my old fingers can't cope with snap-ons any longer). But I have to use a separate tyre pressure gauge when using the pump because its inbuilt gauge seems not to be accurate.

4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent sound quality for a low price, 23 Dec. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
These arrived in good time and immediately surprised me with the high quality of their sound. I liked them so much I bought a second set. The cord does not get tangled up. The earbuds tend to fall out if I'm out walking but in the home they're fine.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good but slightly limited product, 23 Dec. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This arrived promptly, nicely packaged and with a charming leaflet from the proprietor. It fits the iPad mini well, shuts it down when closed, but has less usefulness as a prop stand than I would have liked. Good quality and nicely protective.
