NAME
       psbook -	rearrange pages	in PostScript file into	signatures

SYNOPSIS
       psbook [	-q ] [ -ssignature ] [ infile [	outfile	] ]

DESCRIPTION
       Psbook  rearranges pages	from a PostScript document into	``signatures''
       for printing books or booklets, creating	a new PostScript file. The in-
       put  PostScript	file should follow the Adobe Document Structuring Con-
       ventions.

       The -s option selects the size of signature which  will	be  used.  The
       signature  size	is  the	number of sides	which will be folded and bound
       together; the number given should be a multiple of four.	The default is
       to  use	one  signature	for  the whole file. Extra blank sides will be
       added if	the file does not contain a multiple of	four pages.

       Psbook normally prints the page numbers of the pages rearranged;	the -q
       option suppresses this.
