Assuming you want to create a PDF file,
You have a one stop solution to your problem : imagemagick.
It is as simple as:
convert -adjoin -page A4 *.jpg book.pdf

But first you need to convert the A3 and A1 size images to A4 either by
scaling them or by splitting them into 2 (for A3) or 8 (for A1) parts. You
could use imagemagick to do this too. Use the -crop feature if you want to
split. Use the -scale feature to scale.
