Are you allowed to reuse your own ISBN with same format of book but with different printer? How about if you used an ISBN to a retired project, can you still reuse it if its your own? I will appreciate replies. Thanks.
Change of printer doesn't matter. The ISBN refers primarily to the edition, not the printer. However the ISBN is owned by the publisher so unless you own the ISBN you can't use it. (i.e. if the ISBN is a free Lulu one).
You can't reuse an ISBN for a different book, if the original was published.
