Leigh mentioned in a comment on an earlier post that she has a desktop publishing tool on her computer called Scribus. This is an Open Source piece of software and works on Linux, Mac and Windows. The program can be downloaded from their website.
Also available on their site is part of their manual. The developers there offer a pdf download of the table of contents and chapter one. I did download these and it seems from a brief read-through that this program might be a bit more complex than Microsoft Publisher. This is not necessarily a bad thing. It means you can probably do more with Scribus than with Publisher.
For those who might be a little shy, here is the last paragraph on their web page:
For a good review of other desktop publishing software, go here. the price range of the program goes from $15 to $111.
For a review of more software, including Scribus and Adobe (neither of which is reviewed in my first link), go to this web site.
