[BKARTS] Books left in the cold



Hi there,

I've gained a lot from this list over the last year and a half (thank you)
and have rarely had an opportunity to post a query. However, now I do...

Due to lack of storage, I left quite a few boxes full of blank books
(mattboard covers, graphika wheat 70lb text pages) out in my garage in this
cold New Hampshire winter. (lots of snow this year, very cold)...

When I brought some of them in, I noticed some warping of the inside pages-
due to moisture, I assume.  Does anyone have experience with books that
change from extreme temperatures, or could you share any ideas on how to
transition the books inside to a warmer climate with the best chances of
drying/straigtening them out.

Thanks in advance...
Anna B
