Slowly making my way through restoring my husband’s 1911 Encyclopaedia Britannica set. A couple of the worst books look like they’ve spent some time in the rain (or took a dip in the tub). What’s a restoration approach that might work here? I don’t have a book press but I’ve tried clamping with weights and bricks, but it doesn’t seem to flatten much. My next thought was maybe going signature-by-signature with an iron on low heat? The pages are the very very thin kind (what’s the proper term for that?)
