To realize a stable hygric indoor climate, hygroscopic moisture buffering by materials plays an important role. Not only finishing materials on indoor surfaces, but also textiles (curtains, pillows) and paper (books) show an important moisture buffering capacity. In this paper, the role of books in the stabilization of indoor climates is studied. Recently, a model for hygroscopic buffering by books has been presented (Derluyn et al. 2007) introducing an effective vapour permeability and moisture capacity....
