I needed an A5 book so I used Koma-Script.
My tip is about folding the book.
After making the pdf of the book in A5 size, make a PDF of A4 size
with two pages side by side, and print A4 sheets.
Then cut the pages in half, and you have two "books" to join with
Here goes my clumsy and stupid script to "explode" and rejoin one
Warning: run in a directory with only one pdf on it!
pdftk $ORIGINAL burst
rm -v $ORIGINAL
for i in *.pdf ; do
A="`basename $i .pdf`a.pdf"
B="`basename $i .pdf`b.pdf"
cp $i $A
cp $i $B
pdftk *.pdf cat output combined.pdf
