book.pamphlet is the Jenks book.
boovol1.pamphlet is Axiom Volume 1, the Tutorial

All 10 planned volumes of the Axiom series will start out with the
same "look and feel". It's what book series like the 'for dummies'
or the O'Rielly series do.

Because I couldn't put both graphics on the same page.
That's the problem I mentioned.
No matter what I do the graphics "float" to other pages.
I'm sure it is possible to do (since we did it) but I can make it work.

No. I never got the original latex sources. The book was recreated by me 
by hand from multiple file sources. It took approximately 4 months.

Are you planning to be one the skype conference call?
