20180528 To rearrange a pdf to take the original pages, fit
them two per page, targetting double sided printing, to create a
booklet that is bound in the middle of each folded
sheet, the command pdfjam and in particular its front-end
pdfbook will be useful.
Viewing the resulting pdf document we will see the first
page is landscape with two original pages on this single page, upside
down. These are the first and the very last page from that original
document. The very last page will be blank if the number of pages in
the original pdf is not a multiple of 4, as in
Figure 66.2. The second page will be upright
and will be the second page of the original document and the second to
last page of the original document. And so on. When printed all of the
pages will come out the right way up.
