I have been looking for resources related to (beautifully) typesetting technical and science magazines with LaTeX. I am aware of the Showcase of beautiful typography done in TeX & friends question and it is a wonderful source of inspiration.
However, not many of those examples come with the associated source.
Some of the examples I have been looking for would include:
- Two-column magazines with modern fonts and styling, complex caption positioning for figures and high-resolution graphics and charts, besides illustrations.
- Journals with complex editorial pages, prologues, sections like classifieds or miscellaneous tidbits, etc.
I understand this might be a too broad question but I would like to update this with answers from people out there and make it a valuable resource for anyone thinking (or already working on) typesetting a great looking LaTeX magazine.
Some questions for would-be contributors:
- What styles and classes do you use mostly?
- How do you handle the independent submissions and articles comprising the magazine, and how do you choose to render these into the final compiled PDF/output?
- What makes your job easier as an editor to have a ready-set, standard library of styles and commands that allow easily typesetting formulae, code, captions, figures, Tikz pots, etc.
