How pages appear in a PDF is a function of the viewer the client uses. In Preview, she would select View > Two Pages. I'm sure Adobe Reader has a similar command.

I used to be able to do this before upgrading to Mountain Lion. Here's how I did it in the past:
Print all the individual pages to a single PDF
Open the PDF in preview, show thumbnails, select all pages (command+a) and choose tools > rotate right
Print the pdf with the following options
set up a new paper size that is twice as HIGH as your book pages are wide
Choose the "layout" print options and choose to print two pages per sheet
print to pdf again
open the new pdf and after selecting all pages, choose to rotate left
However... since upgrading to mountain lion, I can't seem to get this to work. I'm trying to print a 12x12 book showing facing pages and my 12x24 paper size seems to be limited to printing a 12x12 image right in the middle of the 12x24 page. I don't understand why I can't do this any more. Does anyone know how to accomplish this using preview on mountain lion?
