Flicking through those books I bought the other day (they arrived today, that was quick!) I saw that you can make contact sheets with a desk lamp. He didn't go into too great a detail, so has anyone got any advice on this? It seems a good idea to me, if it gives ok(ish) results. It did say to use soft paper (not knowing anything about enlarging all I know is what he said there, that it is more forgiving than hard) and not worry too much about the negatives being perfectly flat. To get them flatter you can lay some glass on them but that could introduce dust to the negatives, or pin them down by placing something on the ends of the negative strips. But that is all it said in there.
