Publishing – authoring software for creating an illustrated pen & paper book

At the risk of being aloof (sorry, but could not find any conclusive information) …

Which authoring software is recommended to create richly illustrated books in a style similar to many of Pen & Paper's additions published by companies such as Wizards of the Coast? I am looking for a software to create layout and design in a similar style. Illustrations, tables, quotes, info boxes, etc.

Now, before pointing out the usual suspects like Adobe InDesign, I'm asking this question to see if any of the big publishing tools are better than others.
