I don't know for you, but on my side, I'm a big fan of the O'Reilly book presentation.

I was wondering if some of you know where I could find a LaTeX template with the same presentation ?

I don't know for you but not all of us know what O'Reilly book format is. – percusse Apr 10 '13 at 7:41
O'Reilly is a publisher specialized in IT books. An example can be found here : it-ebooks.info/… – Nek Apr 10 '13 at 8:37
They use Docbook format, not LaTeX. Can't we "imitate" or "reproduce" that without being illegal ? – Nek Apr 10 '13 at 12:49

I tried to do something similar for a packtpub book and you can see the result: http://catalatex.blogspot.com.es/2013/08/llibre-de-format-actual.html.

If you like it, feel free to adapt to your needs.

The PDF is here: https://docs.google.com/viewer?a=v&pid=sites&srcid=ZGVmYXVsdGRvbWFpbnxjYXRhbGF0ZXg5fGd4Ojc2Mzk5ZTRmNTA2NzZiODI

The code is here: https://sites.google.com/site/catalatex9/home/documentclass/llibreactual/packtpub.tex?attredirects=0&d=1

The links now seem to have expired. – Sean Allred Jan 14 '14 at 14:29
It's true. I've moved PDF to: docs.google.com/… and code: sites.google.com/site/catalatex9/home/documentclass/… – jqueralt Jan 14 '14 at 17:15
