    I was looking at the usual online stores, but did not seem to find b&w film in 20x24.

    Where do You buy the film You use ? Any places in europe ?

    Linhof & Studio in the UK list Bergger BFP200 in a variety of sizes, up to 20x24.

    I'm an artist looking to take a small number of photographs with 20x24" or 11x14" camera but I'm having real trouble finding anyone with even 3-4 sheets!

    I've been searching high and low and have obviously spoken to people such as the incredibly helpful Keith Canham from K B Canham Cameras but unfortunately the minimum order of 11 boxes is far more than I need or can afford.

    If you have any that you could sell me, I will pay a very good rate and for shipping etc. and you have no idea how helpful this would be!

    Thank you,

    Eloise

    If you have no luck with finding film in that size then you could always use a paper-negative. After all, you won't be enlarging the results and contact-printing from one piece of paper to another, face to face, can work pretty well. Of course, you will lose several stops of speed doing this, when compared with film. Kentmere glossy RC is about a stop faster than the Ilford papers, in case that helps.

    Eloise,
    Unless you have experience processing film this size or can have it done by a lab; you will probably need another 10 sheets at least for practice. Not the easiest thing to do.
