Yeah I saw that too !! Got an encouraging regular email bulletin from Vanbar just today that read:
Hallelujah! HARMAN Direct Positive Photographic Paper
Many moons ago we received the first ILFORD pinhole camera, we eagerly inspected the box contents with dreams of long exposures and surreal imagery. To our delight, contained within this vessel of creativity, was a lone pack of HARMAN Direct Positive Photo Paper. That's right, photo paper that you expose like any other, but with the 'negative' effect. With our artistic juices flowing we quickly contacted the local HARMAN people to seek more of this hidden gem. Our dreams, it seems, were dashed as this item was not available separately here in Australia.
We asked politely, a lot, for this to change. We're pleased to announce it has! Direct positive is now available in 4x5" 20 sheet packs. Hallelujah!""
