    Is Ian Duncan-Smith making photographic papers now? Or perhaps it means "Irritable Digital Syndrome"... :laugh:

    If this came in 9x12" size I'd buy a LOT. My MCC 9x12 SW stock is almost gone!

    Fixed grade, cold tone and responds to lith developer. I wonder who is making it? A new lith paper would be great as there are so few genuine choices out there.

    I wonder if this is repacked "new old" stock from Fotokemika or even Foma, rather than something newly manufactured.

    Well it is selling 5L of Ilford PQ developer at prices I haven't seen in the U.K. for several years and the so called rough grain FB paper in 5x7 for a 100 sheet box is at a price that is close to unbelievable - about £6.50.

    We will need some U.K. APUGers who have been doing darkroom work for many years more than I have who may just about remember when FB paper was under £7 a box.

    Anyone know when this was?
