Hmmm, took me a while to envision what you are describing, but now that 
I've got it . . . I like it.  If I undersand you correctly, there is no 
absolute need for me to have two pages, one with

text | text

and the other with

art | art

Instead I could just make a single page with

art | text   (or vice versa)

and print it twice.  And if I insert the paper *back* into my printer 
properly, then in the second printing, text will print on the back of 
art and art on the back of text.

Thank you.
