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.
