Book Printing

Best Paper for B&W Images

I’m pulling together a photo book that consists entirely of B&W images.Does anyone have any advice on paper selection? My concern is that the images will print too dark even though I’ve tried to compensate for that by lightening them. I did a test print of them on regular Kodak image stock and they were acceptable, just a little light. Am I safe to think they’ll fall into line when printed on paper stock? I considered doing a 7×7 test book of 20 images but that would mean I’m gambling with the other 75% and $60 or so for a test is a bit steep.

Any thoughts or recommendations would be greatly appreciated.
