I spent today printing on this paper for the first time and I am very impressed with it. As with Dorothy, I too mourn the loss of the original Foma 542 paper; this comes very close to replacing it. I liked the rougher texture of 542 and could do without the eggshell sheen, but this paper will do nicely. The project I purchased the paper for required me to print, bleach, and tone in thiourea followed by gold, and it held up very well.
Thank you Ilford and Simon Galley for giving us another fine paper.
Pleased you all like it.....it seems very much to be a valued addition to the product range.
