bookland (also known as bookland.py) is a
program for generating EAN-13 barcodes, including:
generic EAN-13 barcodes
Bookland ISBN barcodes from 10 or 13-digit ISBN's
ISMN barcodes ISMN support
needs to be updated to 13 digit standard - please come back in Dec. 2010
Meanwhile, if you already have a 13-digit ISMN (starts with "979-0") just input that and edit the EPS file with Wordpad or similar to change the "ISBN" label to "ISMN".
bookland is free software and comes with NO WARRANTY. It

The program has NOT been tested. You're welcome to
use and copy the program without charge but make sure
you can verify the barcodes it produces before you go to press with them.
Unfortunately, no support is available. However, I am always interested in bug
reports, especially if the program generates a faulty barcode. Report bugs
Suggestions (the polite kind) are also welcome. Feel
free to download the code, make
modifications, and send me a patch. If you need help using the
program, you might consider posting a question to alt.publish.books.
No payment is required or expected - just let me know if it works.
That said, some publishers send in autographed
copies of their titles, and
these are much appreciated! If you do, please send to

other useful ways to say "thank you":
