    That's changing, and quickly. It hit bottom and now is coming back. Even around here now there is nascent interest in large format contact printing. I think 3 years is a very optimistic estimate for depletion of current master rolls.

    Adox, an enlarging speed paper from Germany available through JandC Photography, gives contact prints with a tonal range close to Azo. I have Azo prints I made in the 80's (not many, but I have a few left). When I print the same negs on Adox and compare prints directly, well, it's pretty close, with Azo having a slight, but very slight, advantage. It's certainly worth trying, and has the added feature of being double weight. Dean

I wish I had used this paper when it was more available.
    Did you get this off ebay? Man I knew I should have bid higher.
