Your thoughts on the best way to scan or photograph large format print materials?

One of the nice things Matt and I received on our San Francisco visit from one of our interview subjects was extraordinarily rare trade publications from the late 1970s to early 1980s related to things like the videogame and computer industry and CES. These publications feature fascinating ads and articles on many preproduction, unreleased or rare items, for instance Atari's Cosmos tabeltop or Mattel's Keyboard Component. Since I had the task of transporting these back in my suitcase, it now falls upon me to scan these in somehow before mailing them back to their owner. The problem is, these are oversized publications, even well beyond 11" x 17", so no scanner that I know of will accommodate them. So what's the answer? Should I simply carefully use my high resolution digital camera? Is there another answer? Your help is appreciated. Thanks, everyone!
