Thanks Tim,

I did not know about this,and it looks like it will
solve my problem.

Ideally though, because I am producing this brochure
on a server, it would be a real convenience to be able
to reverse the page order whilst staying within

Am I right in thinking that somewhere in the bowels of
reportlab there is some routine that works on a list
of pages to convert the data to a pdf stream? If there
is, I could find that list, reverse it, and let
reportlab do its stuff from that point on.
