Thanks - but it doesn't pay much. ;-)

My point, not well made - in fact not made at all, is that quadtone ink
digital prints can look every bit as good as silver prints. They do look
'different;' and don't believe anyone who tells you they look the same.
(although the black and white prints produced by the HP7690 on BH's best
glossy paper look just like custom silver prints on RC paper - no
kidding). But the quadtone prints are really gorgeous, just gorgeous in
a different way.

So do really well made analog prints.  The (admitted) problem is finding
a lab that will do a quality job.  ( like finding ANY analog lab these
days is not difficult enough!  My 2 pro level labs have both shut down.
Even getting E6 done these days is hard to find.....)

To BD's point.....   I have never said that a publication or a catalog
want other than digital.  It makes good economic sense to them. Congrats
to BD for bagging a good project that pays ......

You can't deny that they have a certain clarity about them.
