Hi Gordon, a very nice (cheap, but thin!) paper is Masa. (Very
cold/bright base...) Weston Diploma Parchment (also thin, but heavier
than Masa) is very nice too. (Very warm base...) Bergger COT 320 works
well too...

Hope this helps & regards,

( http://ccde.usask.ca/uscad/photography ) I'm going to have my students print on the Canson Universal Sketch paper that Christina suggested.  Although its a light weight paper, it works well for both Van Dyke and cyanotype.
