Re: [BKARTS] Books and Humidity



Sorry, if I do this wrong: I have never responded to the List.

I live on a small island in the Northwest. I have been making
paper by hand for 30 years. Some sheets are 6 x 8 '. I have
never had a mold or dry rot problem and I think it is because
there is always a lot of air circulation in the spaces where
I store paper.
