    It would be a pain to use only one paper :-) If I had to choose, Arches Platine without any hesitation.

    Arches platine is damn nice as well.
    Cranes Cover 90 can be purchased directly from Cranes in parent sized sheets and pre-cut 8.5x11 sheets. And it costs less to purchase direct. 25 sheet minimum for about $35 or so for parent sized sheets. 100 sheet boxes for 8.5x11 size for about $20. Shipping is extra.

    P.S. Arches Platine if only one paper were available.

    COT 320. My first paper was platinotype and I thought it was pretty good until I started using COT 320. I think that COT 320 gets a better black. I have no test data to back that up, just a general impression. I would rather make photographs than test.

    Don,

    Thanks for the info. I was always wondering where I could buy Cranes paper inexpensively. I went to Cranes website, but they have different weight. Why people use #90? There are heavier ones too.

    Any thought on this? Thanks.

    Warmly,
    Tsuyoshi

    p.s.: I did find the manual for PM2L online as well as your explanation here as well. Thanks for the tip though.

    Arches Platine...

    but a good friend uses COT320 so when he comes back from his hols I'll nip up and see if we can do a direct comparison and see what transpires!

    I agree with the sentiment that it would be awfully limiting to only have ONE paper. If that were the case, I'd stick to the COT 320. If not, the Soccorro (available from Bostick & Sullivan) is also a very nice paper.

    Tsuyoshi,

    The Cover weights greater than 90# bubble and delaminate iduring processing. Iknow since I've tried it. Just call Cranes as I've found their website to be pretty useless last I was there. They have a program called Cranes Direct. They will only sell a limited number of products direct to the consumer though.

    Don
