2up
with
\usepackage{lscape}
\usepackage{geometry}
\geometry{tmargin=1cm,bmargin=-3cm,lmargin=5cm,rmargin=10cm}
\AtBeginDocument{\input{2up}}
in the preamble LaTeX puts two pages on one!

Another solution is to write all in twocolumn mode and put different pagenumbers in the columns. The following works only for article class! Choose landscape and twocolumn mode from layout->document->twocolumn and layout->document->paper->landscape and write in preamble (example for usletter):

\setlength{\columnsep}{1in}
\setlength{\voffset}{-.75in}
\setlength{\textheight}{6.25in}
\newcounter{mypage}
\makeatletter
\def\@oddfoot{\stepcounter{mypage}%
   \hfil\arabic{mypage}\hfil\hspace{\columnsep}\hfil 
   \stepcounter{mypage}\arabic{mypage}\hfil}
\makeatother

Pagenumbers
No pagenumbers for all pages are possible with the following two commands in latex preamble:

\makeatletter
\let\ps@plain\ps@empty
\ps@empty
\makeatother
prevent numbering from single pages: \thispagestyle{empty} For the first page write this command as an own line behind the title line and for chapter-pages immediately after the chapter title. If you have some problems with empty part-pages than try the following:
\usepackage{sectsty}
\partfont{\thispagestyle{empty}}
changing style of numbering: \renewcommand\thepage{Alph{section}-\arabic{page}} gives a numbering like A-1, A-2, ....

Possible are following styles:

\arabic{page}   ->  1,2,3,...
\Roman{page}    ->  I, II, ...
\roman{page}    ->  i, ii, ...
\alph{page}     ->  a, b, ...
\ALPH{page}     ->  A, B, ...
\fnsymbol{page} ->  (footnotesymbols)
No pagenumber on an empty page:
\let\origdoublepage\cleardoublepage
\newcommand{\clearemptydoublepage}{%
  \clearpage
  {\pagestyle{empty}\origdoublepage}%
}
\let\cleardoublepage\clearemptydoublepage
Special Layout If you need pagenumbers like "- 005 -", load .

pagenumbering like "3 of 12" is possible with package lastpage
\usepackage{lastpage}
\renewcommand\thepage{\arabic{page} of \pageref{LastPage}}
