The book "Life Cast: Behind the Mask" is a beautifully executed book 
that was done with TeX because no typesetter could do the layout spec'd 
by the graphic designers.


Photos of life masks are on the right page with descriptive text on the 
left. Each page of text is set in the same aspect ratio (even though 
the amount of text varies) with no indentation or breaks. Periods end 
sentences and bullets separate paragraphs. There is no hyphenation.

I've put a 300dpi scan (350kb) of a page at

Barry Smith wrote some amazing TeX macros to make it work.
