Is that mean Ilford is real dead?
Maybe they sold their production formula to HFA, or HFA just use their product name as a gimmick?
But no matter what, this is a good news for us who have been using Ilford gold fiber silk for years.
Good Marketing Strategy!

I can't find anyone that carries the paper and has prices on it.
Anyone has the price to compare with the Canson paper?

I dont think it's actually available yet but should be fairly soon.  I was told that the Innova IFA69 paper (similar) is in the process of cutting/packaging/shipping for US sizes and late March or April was their target.

I'd have to believe there will be some sort of Hahnemuhle 'tax' on the price  Sad

The specs state that it's an alfa cellulose paper. How different is this form a cotton fiber? I was under the impression that cotton fiber is also an alfa cellulose, perhaps in a broad sense.  My question is whether the look and feel of this paper is closer to a resin based paper.

The best alpha cellulose fibers equal the best cotton fibers and yes both will be top quality (alpha) cellulose in the broad sense. In the trade all qualities of cotton papers can fetch a better price due to the cotton/rag name reputation. There are inkjet art papers with a top quality inkjet coating on a perfect alpha cellulose base and there are full cotton papers with lower grade inkjet coatings. There are inkjet papers with 25% cotton and the rest alpha cellulose.

The smoothest mat, satin and gloss papers in my collection are alpha cellulose based. RC papers can be smoother than that due to the plain/ECF paper base + PE barriers. It is harder to make/get ultra smooth cotton papers and there is the consumer's expectation that a cotton/rag paper should have some roughness if not at the front than on the backside.

Maybe related to the paper base content the warm fiber/baryta papers are almost all cotton, the cooler ones alpha cellulose based. Very few neutral/warm RC papers exist, almost all have OBA content and are cooler than neutral.

On closer inspection anyone will notice a difference between fiber/baryta glossy papers and equivalent surface RC papers. If not based on the ink reception side then on the back side. Tactile experience included. There are some papers in my collection that are not really falling within the two categories, either they look like RC but have no PE barriers and are based on ECFpaper qualities. Can have other kind of barriers or none at all. Low weight, very white bleached paper base + OBA content in general.

Describing the boundaries vaguely here but in practice (salesmen, ads, specifications) it can be even more confusing. Hardly anybody has touched the HM Photo Silk Baryta yet so that answer will come later.

I received the samples today, great job from Hahnemuhle.
I just finished profiling and testprinting, it is late now, so tomorrow more. Sorry to let you all wait a bit longer, but this much I can tell you already, it is worth the wait ;-)
