Learn about desktop publishing software Laidout (laidout.org), which contains various unusual tools helpful for vector graphics and page imposition for books. Tools include an interactive folder for book signatures, a clone tile interface, and a vector based engraving style illustration tool. A new feature is a node based editor, which aims to bridge the gap between artist focused WYSIWYG editing and the arcane power of coding, and attempts to provide some interoperability with node setups from other applications.
