I want to print a book with my printer and, because I will fold them in two, I have to print two pages of the book on one real page.
Because I am printing a book, I also have to print the pages of the book in a different order as the normal one.

How can I do both?
I am in the book class.

  • Welcome! Your printer should have an option to print in "Booklet" style. Or is this not available for you? – Troy Apr 2 '17 at 2:09
  • Otherwise have a look at the pdfpages package – Troy Apr 2 '17 at 2:16
  • @Troy Depending on the size of the book, I don't think booklet is a good suggestion. pdfpages, however, is, as it knows about signatures. – cfr Apr 2 '17 at 2:37
  • See my answer at tex.stackexchange.com/questions/154777/…. Note that you should ignore the first solution and scroll down to the second. The first no longer works. The second, however, works fine. For a book, you will want multiple signatures and will need to decide on their size. (I.e. you won't want just one, as for a booklet.) But otherwise, the problem is the same. – cfr Apr 2 '17 at 2:41
  • @cfr I was referring to booklet as a printer option. As in, not LaTeX related. I wonder why that is not an option/ acceptable solution? – Troy Apr 2 '17 at 2:44
