The “art” connection may not be obvious, at first.

But, I’ve always equated print layout with art, so, there you go. As an amatuer writer, I’ve been interested in design and layout for quite some time, but the price of layout programs has kept me from doing much about it. That’s where Linux comes in. Again.
The folks at Scribus have developed a free, Linux-based layout program. And, according to this article on Graphics.com, it’s pretty darn good, too! I haven’t looked at this myself, yet, but I probably will. It might be a chance to expand my skill-set.
