I do the same thing with a 20 page stamp bulletin. There is an easyer way of 
doing this. Personally I set up Scribus for 20x A5 pages, one after the 
other. When I'm done with the layout I print it to a PS file. Using 
"pstops" (part of the psutils package) I give this command:

pstops -b -q 2:-1L at 1\(21cm,0\)+0L at 1\(21cm,14.85cm\) infile.ps outfile.ps

This turns each page and put the right pages together on a single page. You 
can then print by using KGhostview (or whatever). If you are using US size 
paper you will need to play with the placement of each page. 

If you have any questions email me off list.

Hope this helps,
