Desert Magic II Drying Book



The larger 8.5 x 11 inch format will easily accommodate blocks or souvenir sheets. The "Desert Magic" Drying System utilizes a special release paper with heavy blotting pages. The release paper will not permit stamps, even those with problem gums like PVA to adhere to the drying surface. The absence of plastic interleaves shortens the time traditionally needed to dry stamps. The book contains 7 blotters with 6 release pages.
Stamp soaking and drying becomes more of a rewarding pastime than a messy chore. Newspapers, phone books, towels, plastic interleaving are no longer required.
