    Try scotch tape then. It's cheap, does a good job and will keep you from your computer for a bit.

    If you don't mind a neat black (on the film) line seperating the four images, art supply stores have black crepe tape in perhaps several narrow widths. You can also lay the film on a sheet of glass, butt the joints together, and tape just the outside edges to the glass.

    Try that sometime and let me know if it was easier than just taping the four negatives together.

    Someone is sending me some splicing tape to try out. I may end up taping the film down to the negative carrier glass, but I want to try taping them together first. I know exactly what I want it to look like in the print, so I am trying to find a way to make that happen.

    Good luck to you Greg. I think the way you are approaching it is the way I'd approach it too. I'd love to hear how it turns out in the end.

    If you have access to 8x10 materials, you could make an 8x10 black and white mask that looks a bit like a window frame, and then tape the four 4x5's into the frame.

    Bingo! Or how about an 8x10 sheet of mylar and some silver tape? However, both these techniques could limit the amount of gutter you show... or eliminate it all together...

    Thanks to Randy (Worker 11811) for sending me some film splicing tape to try. It worked very well and does not show in the black edges between frames in a print. Here are two of the finished prints to show what I was trying to achieve. These are part of a larger series I am working on that includes portraits of family, both nuclear and extended, still-lifes of inherited objects, places of family importance, and these, which are the trees I see everyday outside my window. They are meant to serve as pauses or rests interspersed between the other images.
