In this context Bookland.py is a program, not a format.

ISBN barcodes in eps file format are standard, unless one 
uses a barcode generator in Scribus or Inkscape etc. In all 
cases they should be in a vector format. The recent Chen & 
Chen book on "Using Free Scribus..." recommends jpg but 
his/her reach exceeds his/her grasp. I will prepare one 
more sample showing the same bar code side by side. You get 
to guess which was generated by the Bookland program and 
which was imported from my stash of eps files generated by 
the bookland program driven by my COBOL program.
