Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

I tend to use a2ps for that. And then convert the .ps with gimp or convert (imagemagick). But mostly because I can extract individual pages and keep the correct landscape/portrait orientation with anything to postscript "a2ps". With the correct parameters. YMMV
With Ghostscript, you convert many files to many different image-formats. For a long time, already, I use the following script for this kind of work. I do not recommend the script and just put it here to economize on bad English. Examples are in general easier to understand... ;-)
Check the available Ghostscript devices. I know that for the output of tiffs the script had to be adapted once, but it should normally be okay, like it is.
