Hold the book on both covers so the pages can be air blown without the pages sticking to one another as they dry out. It would also be best to sprinkle the pages with talcum powder to prevent adherence.

Antiques and old pictures are irreplaceable even when scans and reprints have been performed. However, you can never replace the sentimental values of these old photos.

The rule of thumb is the sooner, the better when trying to restore water-damaged photographs. Within 48 hours, undertake all water damage restoration and document drying. Otherwise, moulds and mildew can occur and can create further damages to the photos. The key here is to reduce the humidity and prevent the growth of these microorganisms.
