 A standard two-page layout looks like this

     +----------+----------+
     |  aaaaaaa | aaaaaaa  |
     |  aaaaaaa | aaaaaaa  |
     |  aaaaaaa | aaaaaaa  |
     |  aaaaaaa | aaaaaaa  |
     |  aaaaaaa | aaaaaaa  |
     |  aaaaaaa | aaaaaaa  |
     |  aaaaaaa | aaaaaaa  |
     |          |          |
     +----------+----------+

 But I think I will go away from the calculated page layouts defined by
typearea.sty.  It uses the golden ratio (see
<URL:http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Canons_of_page_construction>, you
will find two-page layouts there, too), which is great, but I will adapt
it for our needs.  So near to a canon, one-sided and with a bigger outer
(right margin).

 Which is not the classical canon, but the reverse, caused by two-up
printing in the wrong order (see below).

 Maybe, but it is still a one-page layout I prefer, as people don't
print right pages on the right but left ones, so using a two-page
layout is useless here.
