DEAR JOACHIM,
        I bought some at a photo shop in Paris in December and recently bought some
from Bostic and Sullivan in the U.S. Where do you live? That may determine
the best source for you.
        Is IS expensive but the image I printed on it has much more depth than I
achieved with Cranes Platinotype under the same conditions.
                CHEERS!

The COT paper sounds interesting - do you have more descriptive information
or where it may be available? Thanks Joachim

DEAR LIST,
        While I often make PT/PD prints on Cranes Platinotype or Lennox
papers, I
have recently made some prints for a show on COT paper. Seeing Christian
Nze's PT/PD prints on COT last Dec in Paris convinced me to try it.
        While COT is too expensive to use all the time (such as first
prints, etc.)
it certainly fits my preferences in so many ways: better wet strength,
amazingly smooth surface, great D-max, and it lays flat without pressing.
Amazing stuff!
                CHEERS!

Hello Ernesto,

> Where would i get a printers mark made?<
I bought an Ideal "Model M" pocket seal. Google gives a lot of results for
this one. You have to provide a black and white design of the mark to the
stampmaker. It will be scaled and transfered in positive and negative levies
to the upper and lower blindstamp plate. Just be cautious that the embossing
area is not too big. Otherwise the stamp doesn´t work with heavy paper or
could be damaged if too much force is needed.

All the best
  Kai
