    I have a lamp that's just been sitting around, and I figured I would put it to some good and make it a print viewing lamp. What lightbulb should I use? I know that there are some varying opinions on this, but what is my best bet?

    You should try to view the print in similar light as to what it will be displayed in. Artists have traditionally liked the light from north facing windows (the other direction in the southern hemisphere, I guess).
