I've been printing some old negatives for a client. He would like some prints from B&W slides as well. Would the Ilford direct positive paper work for this, or is it too contrasty? This person is adamant that they don't want scanning and inkjet prints.

It's great to be working with someone who appreciates the difference between analogue and digital. Some of the negatives are glass plates and go back 100 years to the early days of one of BC's northern communities. Interesting stuff.
