Alfie, the example poster you showed was done with a high contrast 
graphic arts film like Kodalith. Do a search for Kodalith and you should 
find lots about high contrast printing. Basically, it's a process of 
projecting your slide or negative on Kodalith and developing in a high 
contrast developer, repeated until all detail you want gone is gone. 
Don't attempt to do it in-camera with Tech Pan -- Too iffy.
