[pure-silver] Re: Oh How I Miss This Paper

The Agfa papers were magic. My all time favorite was Record Rapid. I missed
out on that paper when I moved from the UK to the US in the 80's. Record
Rapid was readily available there, so I used to fill my suitcase with the
stuff. It toned beautifully in Selenium.

Brovira was wonderful, with great black and clean whites with great
contrast.

I still have a couple of boxes of Record Rapid and Brovira in my freezer,
along with some other Agfa classics, like Agfapan 100 portrait, could only
find that in Germany, matt film base, and Agfapan 25 in 4x5 sheets - maybe
the time has come to use this stuff. I am sure the film will give results,
not sure about the papers.

I managed to get some new old stock Agfa Brovira BEH 111 paper recently when
someone closed down their darkroom. I made a print
with it last night.   I'd forgotten how very lovely this stuff was.

Is anyone making anything close to this (Arista? ...?)
