You can create a 'wide but tall' page.

c = Canvas(pagesize='landscape.pdf', pagesize=(842,595))

Technically PDF supports 'rotation' as well but I don't think we have 
exposed it.  Acrobat Reader is smart enough to display 'rotated A4 
portrait' and 'A4 landscape' the same way on screen so users and 
printers cannot tell the difference.
