After finally finishing the illustrations and layout of the annual report of AELL, the Arbeitsgemeinschaft Evangelisches Lehrerseminar Lima, I played around with some PDF/PS tools this morning. Getting from Sebastian’s post on how to create a booklet to his source, I finally reached a great PDF/PS hacks page of Pro-Linux. There, just recently Michael Roessler postet a short bash script to create a A5 booklet from an A4 PDF which I then used to finally create this nice booklet, covered by the following nice picture ;)

BTW, if you’re braver than I and intend to write your own PDF/PS conversion scripts I suggest using PSUtils, for PostScript file manipulations like rearranging pages, PDFjam, a tool to paste several pages on one page or to rotate a PDF, or pdftk, a great way on how to merge, split, extract etc. PDF files and pages. So the only thing missing is now a GUI integration of these tools and scripts into Evince
