I guess I'll have to come up with a lith film formula then! :(
Sandy King makes beautiful carbon prints from 6x7 cm negatives he enlarges digitally to whatever size he wants. He develops his rollfilm in Pyrocat (HD? MC? I'm not sure which) using the two solution minimal agitation method to produce quite flat, but amazingly sharp negatives. He then scans them with a high resolution scanner, adds appropriate contrast with Photoshop and then prints the negative on Pictorico stock. I can't tell the difference between prints made from these negatives and prints made from the same size in camera negatives.

durst makes ( or used to make ) an enlarger lamp / enlarger that can do this
( the one that can be used to enlarge negatives on pt/pd + azo )
but i don't imagine it would be cost effective just to enlarge a few negatives ...
good luck !
They are now featuring Arista II ortho litho films on the .004 base, and the notes say this is a replacement for the APHS film they used to stock. The new Arista II films seem to be available in a wide variety of sizes, up to 20x24 and now in 24" rolls as well.

P.S. just noticed that they also have 4x5 'film' sizes (slightly smaller) for those that shoot it in-camera. I don't recall them having that before.
Wow that's cool
W. Eugene Smith printed heavily burned and dark prints. I didn't now of that trick. But you need an 8x10 camera to make the neg right?
