    It definitely says printed on Gevaluxe in 1933 in the Gilpin book. I wonder if it is a typo or if it took 20 some years to catch on.

    sorry about the previously missing ees speling is not my strength if I even have a strength.

    I just had the chance to hold one Gevaluxe print in my hand.
    Amazing.

    However the touch is (expectedly) rather grindingpaper-like. I assume I found a way to give a white border print a more velour-like feeling on the borders, but that would be time-consuming.

    Obviously referring to luxury.

    In a British advertisement from 1939 Gevaert wrote:

    "The Stradivarius of Photo-Papers... ...There is one difference however: the photographer has no need to dream like the violinist, for Gevaluxe can be obtained everywhere at a price within everyone's reach."
