[Tugindia] Query... printing two pages (in book-sized format) on A4

Hi, I'm using Lyx. Being a journo, getting words onto paper is my job, but 
not usually formatting them. But, under the inspiration of the Free 
Software mode of production, some of us journalists here have come 
together to collaboratively write and put-out an e-book. It is aimed at 
critiquing journalism in Goa.

Our dream is to one-day possibly print this e-book. 

I'm quite a newbie to Lyx, leave along TeX. Can someone help me with this: 
how to I print two book-sized pages on an A4 page, so that a photo-copy of 
the e-book looks like a real book? Also, this would allow us to take the 
required-size print outs, if the possibilities of printing arise.

As of now, I can only manage printing a single page on A4. If I use the 
horizontal format, and include two pages in it (i) it's hard to read the 
page, as it doesn't seem to turn to horizontal format in ghostview (ii) 
can't seem able to separate the space between the two pages (gutter) and 
(iii) the chapter title spreads across both the pages, making the product 
look ugly. 

Any suggestions from you helpful folk? FN
