    I have a blotter BOOk. I don't like my blotter BOOk. I want a blotter ROLL.
    And I want it for the same reasons given in my first post this subject.

    Yes Yes Yes I did but a blotter book will do the same thing without leaving a permanent curl to the print and is probably why blotter rolls are not much used and books are! You could use the blotter book and rubber band it to a cylinder to get the effect you must want.

    If I remember correctly the roll left a very tolerable concave emulsion side curl; other wise completely flat.

    Rolls were narrow but long. A heavy paper was sandwiched with a pleated ( accordioned ) paper thereby allowing air to circulate.

    Prints do not dry when I have used the books. I do not know how that
    could even be expected given the total lack of air circulation.

    Does anybody actually use the books for drying? Maybe I am missing
    out on something?

    Blotter rolls or books are not my favorite thing , however, there have been occasions when it was necessary to use a book. this was 16 x20 book, placed prints in it and clamped it shut between two pieces of board. Came back a week later to remove. This time factor came about due to experimention. Don&#39;t get in a hurry to sneak a peak. Over washing can lead to problems, the paper becomes too soft and picks up stuff from the blotter paper. Not a pleasant sight.

    Ann do not confuse books with rolls. Rolls are a realistic way to dry prints.
    I&#39;ve yet to see other than praise for blotter ROLLS. Check for yourself. From
    Google enter -blotter roll- . Then try -blotter rolls-.

    Drying time is around 12 to 24 hours. Rolls, as I mentioned, are designed
    for air circulation. Only one problem; rolls are no longer available. Dan

    An interesting item on eBay. At their home page search for Midgo. Not a
    book, not a roll. There is only one Midgo in the whole eBay world. Dan
