I was at the ShowUp photography show in Riverside, CA last weekend and saw Jim Fitzgerald's carbon prints...utterly amazing! I believe he won an award at a show in Yosemite recently...

I've seen some of Sandy King's full color carbon prints and they are stunning.

Sudek (who is one of my very favorite photographers) did make carbro 
prints.  I believe he also made some straight carbon prints from 5x7 
and smaller negatives.  The virtue of carbro is that it can produce 
an enlarged carbon (or generically, pigment) print with familiar 
darkroom procedures (as opposed to enlarged internegatives, which are 
more of a hassle).  Personally, I do not find most carbro prints up 
to the standard of "real" carbon prints made from in-camera 
negatives, but then the two processes aren't really aimed at the same 
negative-producers, so it's usually an apples-to-oranges 
comparison.  And some stunning three- and four-color carbros were 
made back in the day, when it was one of the first available 
high-quality color printing processes.
