Laidout is a desktop publishing program that I use primarily to make cartoon books. It can lay out images and gradients (including mesh gradients) onto booklets, as well as onto arbitrary polyhedral surfaces. Other novel features include controlled multiple image import, and image mesh warping. Being debugged currently are multicontact abilities. Discussion will also include experiences with various open source software for related tasks.
