    Re: Last Sheet of Forte

    Forte was a fantastic paper. I still have some Warmtone 11x14. My favorite was the warmtone graded paper Fortezo. That's the one Jay Dusard used to print his "The North American Cowboy: A Portrait." I've got a about half a box of Grade 2 & grade 3 left for special negatives.

I cooked up a special developer that gave this paper the most neutral cold tone of any recent paper, despite its official Neutral classification. Would love to find a substitute.
    The stuff coated by Forte may well have been very similar - today Bergger NB is coated by Ilford (as far as I know) to Bergger's specs - not a rebranded Ilford product.
