I am trying to find a way to create traditional Tibetan manuscripts in XeLaTex(referred to as a pecha) and one of the things I need to do is to be able to place multiple pecha pages on one sheet of paper.
I have tried to illustrate my needs in the attached image. As you might see, there are three different LaTeX environments:
- Pecha page number 1 with the red frames. This is a title page with a small text frame for just the title.
- Pecha page 2 and 4 are ordinary front side pages, with a big text frame.
- Pecha page 3 and 5 are ordinary back side pages, with an even bigger text frame.
The big green numbers represent the front side of a sheet of paper (1) and the back side (2).
For the following pages 6 to the end of the manuscript, should contain three ordinary pecha pages on one sheet of paper, just like the example image without the title page and empty backside.
I am quite new to (Xe)(La)TeX and I know that there are many bad ways of doing things, so I ask for advice on how to do this properly in XeLaTeX. I need to be able to make the configuration modular enough to follow a common rule like I have explained above, but still be able to arbitrarily insert any other environments I might want to use.
