Probably, this will help you. It is available as a debian package also.


       poster - Scale and tile a postscript image to print on multiple pages

       poster <options> infile

       Poster  can  be  used  to  create a large poster by building it
from multiple pages and/or
       printing it on large media.  It expects as input a generic
(encapsulated) postscript file,
       normally printing on a single page.  The output is again a
postscript file, maybe contain-
       ing multiple pages together building the poster.  The output
pages bear cutmarks and  have
       slightly  overlapping  images  for easier assembling.  The
input picture will be scaled to
       obtain the desired size.
