Speaking of size, my only disappointment so far is the title. It had to be scaled down so much I feel that you lose the detail in the lettering. It's too bad it wasn't on a COA instead, but you can't always have everything. The paper is fine, imo. It's not the most luxurious stock I've ever seen, but its it's no face down roller either. It flattened right away, which earns points.

isn't it the same weight as To Harrow a Naif: Lettra Pearl White 110# cotton

Colossus Aground: Crane Lettra Fluorescent White 110# 100% cotton stock

Shared the same assumption. Was surprised at how light/pliable it was.

What are everyone's guesses for that? I'm hoping for an Ikebana set, but I think I'll put my money on the Archivist.

Seriously doubt it's archivist. Pressure Printing has been doing giclee prints (with additional embossing elements). I expect Archivist to be screen printed
