Two fold-out schematics show the capabilities to be included: conceptualization, photography, graphics and layout, printing and finishing; distribution and follow up; in terms of premises, technical equipment and personnel. The second fold-out shows a possible architectural layout of the premises needed. Suggestions for equipment are also made.
