How to extract one or several pages from a PDF document?

For example the Ohio Secretary of State web site publishes one single PDF with the maps of all the congressional district. I wanted to extract the map for Ohio's 8th congressional district. I did it with the following command line:

pdftops 2012CongressionalDistricts.pdf - | psselect -p8 | ps2pdf - oh8.pdf

See the man page for more information on each command.
