i haven't used the ilford dp paper yet either but l gebhardt is right, it is wicked contrasty, at least
for "normal" photography. you could always flash the paper and use it in semi-exhausted or weak
paper developer and do some tests. another thing you might do, to reprint the images is
to make negatives either contact or enlarged ( paper negatives that is ) and then contact print the paper negatives
onto regular photo paper. it isn't hard, and once you get the hang of what a good paper negative looks like
it is really pretty easy ...
good luck !
