Last I checked, MIS archival inks were a dye-pigment
hybrid.  Which means that -- by design -- MIS is
sacrificing longevity (lightfastness) to improve
gamut.  So you're saying that this compromise is
a failure?

I don't have the best eyes on the planet, but my
eyes (and memory) seem to disagree with your spectro
on this issue.  It's been quite a few months, though,
since my experiment with MIS-arc inks ended.
