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
       input 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.
