Hi Stan,

I forgot to mention one thing, I realized after reading Loris's comment. I have no experience with dmax measurements, so I am not sure how good is dmax of 1.3. But my experience with FA traditional white HP 200gsm was not great in terms of the deepest black. It gave the worst dmax in all of the papers that I have tested. I bought the paper because of its subtle texture and warm base but the results were not good. I only tested argyrotype, new cyanotype and VDB with that paper. FA Extra White SP 300gsm is definitely a better paper in terms dmax, the texture on the reverse side of this paper is also subtle. It is not so pronounced and does not overwhelm the image. I liked both sides of that paper.
