Maybe the best paper for large Cyanotype is the 50” x 33’ roll of Hahnemúhle Platinum Rag Paper. I use this paper for PT/PD and love it. The best I have ever used. 

It is also great for Cyanotype and I think it is Christina Anderson’s preferred paper for Cyanotype.  Chris tested over 100 papers for her new Focal Press book on Cyanotype to be released by Focal Press sometime after the holidays.

Available here as a 50" x 33' roll, the naturally bright white paper offers a basis weight of 300 gsm and is made from 100% cotton fiber. It is acid free with no optical brightening agents and is free from alkaline buffering. This makes it easy to coat and clear
