For my thesis, I would like to be able to put some illustrative pictures in the (exterior) margin, beside text as it is the case in following example (original document, p. 16)

images beside text

However, I cannot find the keywords that would lead me to an answer (I am stuck in threads about side-by-side figures or text-wrapping).

Thanks for any help!

    The package you should take a look at is called marginnote. Your PDF has been typeset with pdfLaTeX. You could kindly ask the author for the source code (or parts of it). – LaRiFaRi Sep 8 '15 at 14:27

    Use the tufte-book class. – Yiannis Lazarides Sep 8 '15 at 14:32
  • Technically, a figure is a float and takes up an entire column, but one can always put an image} into a \marginpar or \marginnote.. To include a \captionof{figure} you will need to use \begin{minipage}{\marginparwidth} .. \end{minipage} since captions use \par. – John Kormylo Sep 8 '15 at 19:23
  • @LaRiFaRi yes I will. marginnote seems to be a good start! @StevenB.Segletes yes it is, thx. @YiannisLazarides It is the kind of result I'd like to achieve, indeed. However, I'd personnaly like - as far as possible - to remain within Koma-script classes that I begin to master and already pimped a bit. – ebosi Sep 8 '15 at 21:02
