Well this is imposition, which can be done in many ways. Since you're 
sending this then print doesn't seem an issue (but maybe for your friend).

You can make a custom layout in Scribus. Use an A4 page (or US Letter 
size) in landscape orientation. The first page will use the right half, 
then pages 2&3 use the left and right sides of page 2, and so on.

If your friend is using Adobe Reader to view the PDF, he can set the 
viewing in AR to his liking.

In short, there are many ways to accomplish what you want.

This is also on the wiki, and would be done after making the PDF.
