I just finished an article for Ministry Tech magazine (if you haven't signed up for the FREE subscription to it, CLICK HERE) and as part of that article talked about how and why years ago I switched from using primarily Adobe PageMaker to MS Publisher to teach and equip church communicators.
As part of that explanation I mentioned an e-book I created years ago to illustrate all you can do with MS Publisher and how in many ways it can equal the design capabilities of far more expensive graphic design and layout programs.

I was so sick of hearing this that one night when I was traveling and teaching seminars I spent about and hour and a half in my hotel room recreating the ad. The downloaded book allows you to see it better but here is a screen shot of the result:
