I would definitely look into InDesign--from at least version 2 of the
Creative Suite, InDesign could share files with other components of the
Suite, such as Illustrator files. I'm sure it's become much more versatile
since then. Even at CS2 level, it's a great program for what it was designed
to do.

It will be fun to see what others recommend (I hear that Quark is back in
the running as a layout tool).
