Some other threads of use:
This suggests the glass plate idea might work
This suggest Epson scanners might be able to focus to different heights.
The larger bed scanner like the Epson 11 x 17 or the MUSTEK A3 scanner, offer you the idea of not
having to have the edges pressed down into the glass, just crop the edges off the image an then do
If you remove the scanner lid and use a smaller object, like a big book, you flatten the center area
while not creasing the art paper at the edges. The crop the scan to just the flattened area, which
is still a reasonable size on a large bed.
The MUSTEK sells for $500-ish
