Rich -

Have you seen the hundreds of surfaces available in watercolor papers, 
canvas, and fiber for inkjet prints?  I have gotten sample packs from 
several companies and all of them give a different look.  The new inks and 
papers are more archival than darkroom prints.  Black and white prints with 
the QuadBlack inks and coated papers are as viable an option as color 
inkjet prints.  Try it, you'll be amazed!
