yes, as I written in a further edit to my question, for reasons of economy in printing and binding I do not want use 8-Page Imposition that implies folding of pages in groups of 8, but I want make a single signature of all pages (like in A5 booklet) that I can cut and apply then the glue without needing of folding. if you create your own model in paper of my imposition you'll see better what I mean

because is simple for 8, 16 32 or, at least, 64 pages, write manually imposition orders, but I need automation for longer books (more than 200 pages). I attached a picture I made to show the right imposition sequence for a 16 page A6 book across an A4 (logic is the same for longer books)

well. I added to original question, a more generalized script to show logic of this imposition. I need to automatize the process of imposing an A6 book across an A4 page (4 A6 pages into any face of an A4 page). total pages to impose are ever a multiple of 8 - refresh page to view my edits to original question

+1 for offering valuable alternative one-liners. Maybe it would be worth considering to add xargs in order to not have too many arguments error, if number of strings becomes very big (100 or 200 or more)
