Palladiotypes are prints made using palladium instead of silver to build up the image; it results in beautiful, warm prints full of texture.  These examples are made by hand-coating 100% rag art paper - hence the 'brush strokes' at the edge of the prints.  (Actually, a brush isn't used for coating - to ensure a consistent thickness of coating these are coated using a glass rod to 'push' a puddle of palladium & ferric oxalate across the surface of the paper.)

Because Palladiotypes are exposed under ultra-violet rather than visible light, an enlarger is no use (my eyes don't focus UV ;-).)  These are therefore contact prints, from 4x5" negatives.
