Formatting double-page floats in LaTeX

You sometimes want to format two, full-page figures or tables to appear
side-by-side in an opened book. The first figure must be on the left (even
page) and the second figure must appear on the right (odd page).

LaTeX provides no way to assure that two consecutive figures will come out
this way. This double-page float package, dpfloat.sty, allows you to specify
that a float must appear on an even page, and thereby allows you to format a
double-page figure.


You format a double-page figure by formatting two consecutive, full-page
figures, specifying that the first must appear on a left page. The other
will follow on the right page.

It looks something like this:





     % a double-page figure

       \begin{figure}[p]% will be the left-side figure
            This is the left side figure
       \begin{figure}[p]% will be the right-side figure
            This is the right side figure

     % end of the figure

dpfloat – Support for double-page floats

Provides fullpage and leftfullpage environments, that may be used inside a figure, table, or other float environment. If the first of a 2-page spread uses a "leftfullpage" environment, the float will only be typeset on an even-numbered page, and the two floats will appear side-by-side in a two-sided document.
