I find the paper weights confusing so I had to look this up. According
to papermaking section of Chicago Manual, Cover papers are measured in
20x26 size, and 90 pounds is equivalent to 243 grams per square meter.
Does this sound right? If this is real and the paper can sustain wet
processing, I'll give it a try! But please give me a bit more of
confidence before I make a trip to a store (which is actually only a
couple of blocks away).
