       pdfbook2 [ options ] INPUT [ INPUT, ...]

DESCRIPTION
       Create  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 choosen by pdfjam. It can be set with 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 over-
       written. All input files are processed seperatly.

EXAMPLE
       To simply create a booklet from input.pdf you can use

              pdfbook2 input.pdf

       to create input-book.pdf. To select a special type of paper you can do

              pdfbook2 --paper=letter input.pdf

       for letter or

              pdfbook2 --paper=a4paper input.pdf

       for standard A4. To increase the inner margin for binding use

              pdfbook2 --inner-margin=200 input.pdf

       to increase the default value of 150. You can submit multiple files  to
       the script for processing like

              pdfbook2 input1.pdf input2.pdf

       which will result in input1-book.pdf and input2-book.pdf.
