58 x (88 x 3 x 12) = 183744 square inches, at 1440 dpi would mean
something like 183000 * 1440 * 1440 * 3 = 1143034675200 bytes. That's
1143 GB - entirely unpractical. I don't think even super hi res for
posters really means 1440 dpi (unless the image is scaled).
Anyway - I suspect you will want to look at vector images instead of
bitmaps. (or panelling)
