I was startled to see your thread topic; I, too, am...am...yes, a lover of "not glossy."

It's interesting that under the Arista brand, it is called semi-matte, just like Kodak describes N. Yet, under the parent Foma brand, they called it matte.
The Varycon "mat" is just that, like your door mat, dull, BTW.
Kodak still makes N in its color line.
