How to create a 'dictionary style' PDF document from Org, with two columns and with dynamic page headers[1]: here I share (attached) an Org file, in case it is useful to someone, with the (simplified) LaTeX code I used to define the styles of the entries and the dynamic page headers in the typesetting of the /Hispanic Dictionary of Classical Tradition/.

I produced this dictionary (828 pp.) using Org and Org-Publish, with
output to LuaLaTeX. Some images:

[1] If a page contains multiple entries, the first and the last entries are collected, both separated by an en dash; if the page contains a single entry, or a continuation of the previous page/entry, it is
collected that entry only.

Nice work!

All the best,

Thomas S. Dye
