Printing Booklets With Pdfjam

Recently I wanted to create a booklet from a pdf I created with XeLaTex . I found out that MacTex comes with a tool for that. Pdfjam and it’s front-end pdfbook are the perfect tools for the job.

pdfbook --short-edge file.pdf

This creates a file name file-book.pdf. This file is ready for duplex printing and folding into a booklet afterwards.
