Pellon is a commercial brand of interfacing (find in a sewing store) that
works well - just don't buy the fusible bond type! However - in Japan, what
papers/materials might be available and practical for Eric to use?

Has anyone ever tried ironing out cockled pages with a warm iron, using a
moisture-absorbing material under and on top of the pages? (I haven't - just
curious if that might work.)

After 15 days, Eric's book pages may not even be moist. Just wrinkled. (Sort
of like me, after 65 years....)
