This is a 25-sheet box of 4 x 5" Direct Positive Fiber Based (FB) Paper from Harman. It is a fun paper that can be used for many purposes.

This paper can also be used in large format photography or even when cut into small sheets for LOMO-type cameras.
As a creative tool, Direct Positive Paper can be used in the creation of interesting photograms of everyday items. Just cut it up into whatever size you need and you're ready to make an exposure. Finally, you can also use this paper as a traditional printing paper using a negative.
