I seem to be getting these in a kind of random order, and someone else
has already suggested the same paper.
Sandy's right; sharpness is a relative term, and I should probably
clarify that my old Photo EX prints negatives that make gum prints as
sharp, detailed and subtle in tonal shading as I want, although whether
Sandy would find them as sharp as he wanted would be for him to say. I
was simply remarking on the difference between these prints and a direct
contact print on gum from an in-camera 4x5 negative. The difference
isn't remarkable, but it's noticeable.
