There's a fine guidebook called the Geek Atlas, which should be what you're looking for. Bit US centric though: http://shop.oreilly.com/product/9780596523213.do
Once the writing was done I submitted it to the publisher via SVN (each book had its own project) and then the book was converted to a PDF. I then used Adobe Acrobat Reader to mark up changes based on the proofread and copyedit. The book was actually put together in Adobe InDesign but I had nothing to do with that.
It's a pity that he mentioned the Tech Museum in San Jose though, it's really very poor IMHO.
