OK I noticed a reference to this and I had to look back a few pages to find out for sure if someone had actually said this.
I cannot disagree more. The print is flat. Changing the viewing distance of the print cannot change the proportions on the print.

My nose would still be 80% the width of my face, no matter how near or far the print was. Nor what angle it was viewed at. Trust me, I've tried
Or perhaps it may be possible that my nose would actually be appear larger if I put my real nose right up to the print.
But this would be the opposite effect of what you were trying to describe.
