Yes, these are great. I've see them before and they're done by a list member 
here, Jalo Porkkala who works in Finland.

His great alt process site is here: http://vedos.samk.fi/  or  try

Re: Ian Sanderson, who also shows up here from time to time...his work is 
breathtaking and inspiring. He's an incredible photographer on the 
commercial side as well, but his gum work just astounds me, and his are BIG 

He's at: http://www.iansanderson.com/

Regarding a punch...god, those are so expensive. I pin register with push 
pins, works like a charm if the paper's not mounted (to aluminum). But I'm 
wondering if I can just use a good 3-hole punch and appropriate size reg 
pins (align the negs, tape them down to the lightbox, and punch). If you can 
do it without shifting the films you should be good to go...or use a simple 
1/4" hole punch.

Anyway, food for thought....
