# How to color a single logical page among the eight printed on a physical page? [duplicate]

is it possible to color a single logical page among the eight printed on a physical page?

\documentclass[a4paper,fontsize=23pt]{scrreprt}
\usepackage[margin=0.75in,bottom=0.3in,footskip=2em,includefoot]{geometry}
\usepackage{lipsum}
\usepackage{pocketmod}

\title{A PocketMod Booklet}
\author{R. Noureddine}

\begin{document}
\maketitle
\lipsum[1-12]
\end{document}

I don't have the pocketmod package, but this colors a single page.

\documentclass[a4paper,fontsize=23pt]{scrreprt}
\usepackage[margin=0.75in,bottom=0.3in,footskip=2em,includefoot]{geometry}
\usepackage{lipsum}
\usepackage{pagecolor}
\usepackage{afterpage}
%\usepackage{pocketmod}

\title{A PocketMod Booklet}
\author{R. Noureddine}

\begin{document}
\maketitle
\lipsum[1-3]
\newpagecolor{yellow}
\afterpage{\restorepagecolor}
\lipsum[4-12]
\end{document}

You can "colour" a page using the absolute positioning of tikz if you add the following code to the page in question. Depending on the position within your text, it may overlay or stay behind your text. You will need the positioning library from tikz.

\begin{tikzpicture}[remember picture,overlay]
\fill[red,opacity=0.2] (current page.south west) rectangle (current page.north east);
\end{tikzpicture}


The wallpaper package allows setting a background (image) for the current page, using code such as \ThisCenterWallPaper.

Either one should reference your logical page; Depending on how you group the pages together on your physical page, you may have to adapt your code.
