Great for landscapes and still life, could be a bit more contrasty, but maybe it's me.

Incredible quality!

I have been doing chemograms and regular prints with this paper and all the results are beautiful. It has a great range of grey tones and very solid blacks. I will be purchasing this again as a go to darkroom paper. :)

I like it!

I use this variable contrast paper for negatives of mine that may not be perfect exposure. I also use it for tinting or coloring with squab, pencil, oil stick, transparent oils. It is highly resistant to reworking the surface.

Rich mat paper

The standard

I am new to darkroom printing so I can not compare this paper to much else, but I would consider it to be the standard that all other paper should be compared to. It has excellent detail in the final print and even dries relatively flat. I highly recommend it

Yes it is, but you have to get the correct black and white chemicals for this paper. Cannot believe how much everything has changed. But it is for the environment. Good luck.
