Welcome to Libre Graphics Production!

Making free software for graphic production work together

At Libre Graphics Production you will find a complete set of instructions for making your own book or other graphic project using free, open source, software. The ambition is to provide a starting point for working with the open source "creative suite": Scribus, GIMP and Inkscape.

A working workflow

This site is built around a recommended workflow for graphic production:

Flowchart and suggested software.

For each step we present the desired functionality, the recommended software, the file formats and tutorials. Additionally, this site also presents free tools for working with graphic production with links to documentation and tutorials. You can also find more free resources.

There are more ways to do it

Note. This is a workflow and software that we have tried and that works. In our opinion just as well as the proprietary alternatives. But we know that there are more great free choices than this. If you have any suggestions or recommendations, don't hesitate to contact us or leave a comment after the relevant text. We also have a page about alternative strategies.
