    Having worked for several sick, suicidal, and dying organizations in my career, I feel your pain, PE.

    Although I printed with many of differnt brands over the years, Dupont, GAF, Ilford, Agfa, just to recall a few, when in the US I always had more Kodak on hand than any other brand. I was disappointed when Kodak stopped production and remain hopful (long shot a best) that after re organizaiton Kodak might find some way to make B&W paper and earn a profit. As PE has pointed out the in the past the issue is the scale of production for a limited run.

    Ok, no idea if this has ever been mentioned, but could Kodak do a small production run of Any Paper?

    For black & white, in a word? NO

    there was word a while back, maybe 5 months ?
    that a kodak person, or someone speaking with authority
    about a "maybe direction of kodak" in the future was they were
    thinking about maybe doing boutique runs of anything listed
    in the film (and paper?) catalogue ... but no one knows
    more than just it being a hopeful scenario ...

    in a dream world it would be wonderful if they
    had the ability to do small and boutique runs but
    the reality of the situation is they can barely stand on
    their 2 feet without crutches, a nursemaid an a wheelchair nearby ...

    Kodak is not going to make another paper run of B&W paper.

    They are running color on a regular basis.

    Kodak paper lamentation....

    As good as some of it may have been we have an abundance of excellent B&W papers today. Ilford MGWT is quite possibly the best paper I've ever used and MGIV and Adox MCC 110 are also excellent. Even with Efke gone we are not lacking for good paper. Hope Kodak survives for their C41 films.

    Roger,
    I think Guillaume is asking because many of the modern papers don't work well for his process and vision. If you check out the gallery postings of chromoskedasic work he's been sharing, you'll find a fair bit of expired Kodak papers mentioned, like Opal.

    Guillaume,

    Do you have any interest in making your own paper for lith printing? I can be done. Of course, I don't know if it's worth it to you. Very reasonably, not everything is worth going 10 extra miles. fwiw, I'd get out of handmade silver gelatin if staying in required I make my own gelatin! Fortunately, making paper is very easy.
