I'm finishing up a book cover now.
Does the barcode have to be at a corner? Or can it be on the far left but 5 inches away from the bottom?

Not a graphics artist but I can see cashiers being annoyed and having a hard time finding the bar code.

Very True!

So is it just a bad idea to place it away from the corner?
Because this book cover is all done and the barcode looks so much better higher up. I don't want to ruin the design:) I designed the cover with the barcode at the corner but ,oving it up would definitely improve the look.

Ok I pulled a whole bunch of books off a shelf. The bar codes are on the back of the book either in the lower right or left hand corner, it is the same on small paperbacks. The same holds true for hard bound books with dust covers. The bar codes are on the back of the dust cover and on the lower right or left side.

I would guess that these are industry standards.
