Place books on end, separate pages, and air dry. You can also try placing unmarked dry paper between the pages and pressing to prevent crinkling and distorting. if very wet, air dry until damp, sprinkle cornstarch between pages, allow starch to consume moisture, then wipe with a dry cloth.
Sharp-freeze immediately. When desired copies are needed, simply allow to thaw, lift off each page as it thaws and copy. Contact any of the meat-cutting firms located in the yellow pages of your phone book for sharp (quick) freeze service.
