Maybe the AVision AVA6, ,just A6 sized scanner is handy in your case.

Maybe google for it, the SPECs and pictures. It is not yet supported
by SANE, as it is 100% different from the other Avision scanners, but
I have info around to finish the avision2 driver if anyone has demand
for it (so far I had no use for the AVA6 on my desk and thus the
avision2 driver creation is not my top TODO right now).
