Letterpress requires actual metal type and a letterpress printing machine. Or do you mean something different by 'letterpress'?

I mean to print the document like a book. So that the pages are in the right order (like a book) when I fold the pages

If you want to do this using your own office printer, you can use a certain option in the Print dialog box within Acrobat Pro (see the attached image).
If you need to do this in a professional print shop, usually a special software for imposition is used to make the required arrangement of each page to the printing plates.
