How I made a free New Zealand coffee-table book using lots of Free Software

In 2009 I made a trip to New Zealand where I took about 15,000 photos. After I spent weeks selecting and processing the good shots and getting very positive feedback from my friends, I decided to try to make a book about my trip. I had already been using Scribus in the past, but not for anything beyond very simple one-page layouts. Trying to figure out how to do a whole book took me a while, not only working with (and on) the tools, but also reading a lot about design, typography and more esoteric stuff like colour management.
