pdfbook2 – Create booklets from PDF files

This python pro­gram cre­ates print-ready PDF files from some in­put PDF files for book­let print­ing. The re­sult­ing files need to be printed in land­scape/long edge dou­ble sided print­ing. The de­fault pa­per for­mat de­pends on the lo­cale and is cho­sen by pdf­jam. It can be cho­sen us­ing the --pa­per op­tion.

Be­fore the pdf is com­posed, the in­put file is cropped to the rel­e­vant area in or­der to dis­card un­nec­es­sary white spaces. In this pro­cess, all pages are cropped to the same di­men­sions. Ex­tra mar­gins can be de­fined at the edges of the book­let and in the mid­dle where the bind­ing oc­curs.

The out­put is writ­ten to INPUT-book.pdf. Ex­ist­ing files will be over­writ­ten. All in­put files are pro­cessed seper­ately.
