Pollen delegates the nitty-gritty of generating layout to other tools. So the 
workflow is 

1) find a tool that will make the layout you want 
2) write a program that commands the tool to make this layout 
3) generate this program with Pollen. 

Today — hopefully not forever — the best option for making programmatic print / 
PDF layouts is LaTeX.

(Of course, on the web the tool is the web browser, and the "program" is HTML.)
