    Default Upside down scanner?

    Can anyone recommend a scanner that works upside down? Like, instead of putting a document on a scanner I want to put the scanner on the document.

    How big does it need to scan?

    Basically beside flatbed you have sheets fed and portable handheld but the handhelds aren't very good.

    I bought a ton of old newspaper things. Like an entire month of newspapers hardbound into giant books. They range from the 1890-1970 and I want to scan spot illustrations and stuff but I don't want to destroy them in the process. They're too big to put on top of my shitty 3-in-1 epson.

    Hopefully, I'll be doing a kickstarter for CrapHound style booklet of the end results.

    Something like this perhaps
    Wolverine Twin Rollers Handheld Scanner PASS-200 B&H Photo Video
    Scans 8.25" x 50". Pretty cheap too

    Personally I like to scan halftones at 1200 dpi and higher from magazine/newspapers as too low a dpi the dots become blurry squares.

    Yeah... I don't know if that will really deliver the quality of image I'm looking for. It looks like it's mostly for OCR and I can't find any reviews about images. But theoretically that would be great.

    This looks promising but no iOS 10.7 drivers

    You might want to consider a nice camera and a nice camera stand.

    I saw a picture Daniel Danger posted on Instagram where he had a scanner laid on top of one of his paintings. Not sure what kind of scanner it was but you could hit him up.
