Sunflowers for Picasso?

It was shot on ISO 400 film and processed in minilabs, but it sure wasn't
printed off minilab prints. They may be handy for editing, but not for
reproduction in a large format book.

I think the feat was getting such a good looking book from such a "coarse"
film by today's standards.
