Psbook uses Pstops to rearrange pages from a PostScript document into ‘signatures’ for printing books or booklets, creating a new PostScript file. The signature size is the number of sides which will be folded and bound together; the number given should be a multiple of four. Extra blank sides will be added if the file does not contain a multiple of four pages.
