Collaborative graphics on the rise

Published November 4, 2010

In a short timespan, two interesting free / open / collaborative publication projects have appeared on our radar:

Das Kollaborative Buch

Over the coming weekend, (starting Friday 5th November, 8 PM), a BOOK SPRINT will occur at Dock18, Zurich. 12 authors are providing text and visual materials in order to produce an open collaborative book …
Supervised by Alessandro Rimoldi (graphicslab.org) und Mario Purkathofer (dock18.ch).

Libre Graphics Magazine 1.1

Another related project is Libre Graphics Magazine, which is preparing it’s 1.1 release. Quote: “Libre Graphics Magazine is an effort to serve a neglected population: professional and high-level hobbyist users of Libre Graphics software.”

The Open Source Publishing blog writes about it : “With ginger coons, Ana Carvalho and Ricardo Lafuente on the editorial team, support from the Mardigrafe printing house and Studio XX in Montreal, we look forward to a spicy mix of well-known authors and new discoveries”.
