    Book details


Just Lorem Ipsum is a demonstration of the use of open-source software for self-publishing. It contains one hundred pages of filler text, specifically, lorem ipsum, arranged in ten chapters. It has an appendix that describes its production. 
Do not buy this book if you are expecting something to read! The full text and a description of the production of the book are available free on my blog, JohnOsterhout.com. If you want to have a copy as a joke or to show your friends, by all means, buy a copy. I'll spend the money on good beer, I promise. 
I used Linux (Ubuntu) as the operating system for all my computers. All of the software I used is available free. The interior of Just Lorem Ipsum and the cover were produced with Scribus. Graphics were handled with the GIMP and Inkscape. I used LibreOffice for word processing. All of the fonts used are available at no cost.  

John Osterhout was born in Ranger, Texas. He grew up in several towns in east and central Texas before escaping to college. John's previous book, "The Schnoz of the Rings", is a parody of Tolkien's The Lord of the Rings. When he is not trying to write, John slaves away at his day job as department chair and professor of chemistry at Angelo State University in San Angelo, Texas where he tries to trick freshman into learning chemistry. He lives in San Angelo, Texas with his wife, Kathryn.
