Let's assume you have the following 259 page document, littered with text and images: \documentclass{article} \usepackage{graphicx,lipsum} \newcounter{lipsumcntr} \begin{document} \loop\unless\ifnum\value{lipsumcntr}=50 \stepcounter{lipsumcntr} \lipsum[1-\thelipsumcntr] {\centering \includegraphics[width=.8\linewidth]{example-image}\par} \repeat \...

\documentclass[a4, 12pt]{report} \usepackage{xcolor} \usepackage{pagecolor} \usepackage{lipsum} \pagecolor{black} \color{white} \begin{document} \lipsum \lipsum \lipsum \end{document} This gives you as global pagecolor black and as global textcolor white. I think that this is what you're looking for. For further information, you can also have a look ...

The only thing left to do with your your MWE is to rotate the page. For this the pdfpages has the option landscape: \documentclass{article} \usepackage[english]{babel}% \usepackage[a4paper]{geometry}% http://ctan.org/pkg/geometry \usepackage{pdfpages}% http://ctan.org/pkg/pdfpages \begin{document} \includepdf[landscape,pages={1,3},nup=1x2,frame,delta=2cm ...

Warning: totally opinion based. I would definitely go with something in portrait format. This is less cumbersome to turn pages. as beamer slides are designed to be read from some distance, the font size etc. is normally larger than in normal printing.

In your preamble \documentclass{article} \begin{document} \ifdefined\screenview screenview % set margins for screen \else PDF % set margins for PDF \fi \end{document} On command line pdflatex "\def\screenview{} \input{whatever.tex}" Note: I've no idea what the extra braces in \screenview{} are for, but they do seem to be necessary.

I recently faced a similar issue. Using your first set up and the page ordering 8,1,2,7,6,3,4,5 it was enough to use print two-sided with short edge. (I am sorry for posting this as an answer---not enough reputation to comment.)
