interesting. we were just discussing this on IRC last night. here's my
solution+hack for the moment.

create a scribus document that is in width and height, equal to the
total width and height of your 12x12 pages.

use guidelines to mark the page borders, margins, and other aspects.

author your document, and then finally issue the print command from

i dunno the availability and feature-set of epson 1280 drivers for cups.
my experience shows, if its not available, you just need some patience,
and to notify people on the cups mailing list. soon, you'll find

assuming for the moment you do NOT have any CUPS support [to even print
to the epson] your large-sized document.

save your scribus file as a pdf and/or an eps [tip 'o the hat to brian
for this] and squirt the file(s) across to a windoze or mac pc that can
transmit the file to the epson for outputting.

happy authoring *in* scribus, irrespective of which final outputting
workflow you adopt.
