Thanks for your offer! I apologize for my
tardy response, but an impatient customer, an
equally impatient spouse and various domestic
chores has kept me busy.

There are two scripts, one for inchers and one
for the mm crowd. Here are the links: 

I also created a sample of a completed template
using the "inch" version. I specified 200 pages, 5
inch width, 8 inch height, 513 ppi paper,
0.012 inch cover thickness.
The resulting layout is shown here:
The last window of the stream of windows
displayed is left on the screen.

I think the scripts are self-explanatory but if
you don't then I will add comment lines to each
window that appears. I am an old programmer but a
total newbie with python: these are the first two
python programs I have ever attempted.
