Take a look at the Strathmore line.
Good choice for rag content and watermarked paper.
Their fine art and creative art papers also deserve a look.

Which kind would work the best on a Kelsey 3x5?

Some of the papers I have used recently included Somerset, Arches and Cartiera Magnani (Arturo). There are various weights and textures within these lines. These papers all print very nicely for me (on Heidelbergs), but I don’t have any experience with Kelseys.
