        This is a wonderful, rich black & white paper. If you are a fan of traditional processes and like a warmish toned paper, I highly recommend it!

        Comments about Ilford Multigrade Art 300 Paper (16 x 20", 30 Sheets):

        This paper is exciting. It has a tactile quality. Of course you will be probably the only one touching it, but as a photographer who develops your own prints you will love the almost sensuous feel of the paper. The texture and the slight sheen will be visually appreciated by the viewers. It feels like a thick watercolor paper (and so it's easy for spotting with a brush -as well as hand coloring larger areas) with a nice sheen. The white of the paper is creamy and the blacks will get quite deep. Without toning the mid tones and dark tones will have the very slight earthy green hue similar to Bergger warm tone paper and when toned with selenium for more than 6 minutes in dilution 1:10, it acquires a beautiful chocolate tone in the dark areas and a pinkish- light chocolate tone in the mid-tones. I use the word chocolate because the print will look delicious. When toned for only 3 minutes at the mentioned dilution, the slight green original hue is neutalized to a well balanced black and white print with a great d-max. It looks gorgeous without toning,or toned for neutrality and d-max or toned all the way to the rich pink chocolate!
        The paper is not for every negative...I think it's best suited for sort of mysterious or poetic or minimal images. Great for chairoscuro images, for minimal architecture, melancholic landscapes, grainy- edgy-blurry images.They will look like engravings by a master printer. Rembrant here I go!!!!
        For highly detailed images you may find that the texture of the paper gets in the way...My opinion is that it works better for 400 film and above and not so great for 100 film and below...

            Comments about Ilford Multigrade Art 300 Paper (16 x 20", 30 Sheets):

            The weight of this paper is impressive. Great for hand coloring or painting onto. Reminds me of old Luminos papers like Charcoal R. Wonderful paper if you are going for a certain antiqued feel or for an image that has a lot of texture. I had a student who did a series of figure studies and it was quite nice with skin texture and tone. My only dislike is that the blacks tend to not appear quite as black once it dries, but I think that it is merely a product of the heavy paper texture and how the light reflects off of it.

              This paper is very matte, but after working with it for a bit I found I could push it easily, increasing contrast and prolonging time and it gave beautiful results, rich texture, deep blacks and bright highlights. It is a bit delicate once it's wet (100% cotton) but I found the results to be a nice change from the glossier papers. There's a certain "real life" quality to it.
