with a resin emulsion coating , which gives a modern even finish (see above example)

great clarity with archival longevity.

Beautiful, Ilford Multigrade FB Warmtone darkroom Fibre Paper

(museum/exhibition standard traditional photographic paper)

which is fixed and dried by hand, as well as then hand-retouched.

This paper tends to give greater depth and tonality and has a distinctive ‘silky’ textured finish (see above example)

giving very deep blacks, a wide range of midtones and stunning clarity.

All our Fibre prints are a Limited Edition of 300 regardless of print size.
