I mean a form of book in which the page of one page from a conventional book is printed across two pages, so the text appears to be parallel to the spine. Accordingly, the numbering of pages occurs on the basis that two pages opened vertically are one page. I can't even imagine how this can be done in latex?

    doesn't that just amount to printing the document landscape and binding along the long edge? Dec 1, 2023 at 12:23

    and only printing the (halved) page number on every other page Dec 1, 2023 at 12:24
  • but how to print "the (halved) page number on every other page"? considering the need for imposition?

Something like this, if I understand correctly

enter image description here

\documentclass[landscape,a4paper,twoside]{article}
\usepackage{fancyhdr}
\usepackage[left=3cm,right=3cm]{geometry}
\usepackage{lipsum}
\fancyhead{}
\renewcommand{\headrulewidth}{0pt}
\renewcommand{\footrulewidth}{0pt}
\fancyfoot[OC]{}
\fancyfoot[EC]{\huge---\the\numexpr\value{page}/2\relax---}
\pagestyle{fancy}
\begin{document}
\lipsum\lipsum\lipsum\lipsum
\end{document}

    Now I understand. Thank you. Looks beautifull. You just created Dwarsligger for latex! Very impressive!

    Just like its author Dec 1, 2023 at 12:49
  • Is it possible to minimize the bottom margin on odd-numbered pages and minimize the top margin on even-numbered pages so that the vertical spread of the book looks almost like one single page? (like in a Dwarsligger)
