Chris, 2 things: a) Sometimes these types of books benefit from a 400 d p i &/or grey-scale setting. The only way to determine that is to scan a few troublesome pages using various combinations to see; b) If u just wanna nuke the graphics, try a text only zone template for the book. c) If u wanna somehow put the pages in a notebook for me, I can probably optacon this & get it straight. But w/chopped pages, if they get out of order, I would be so *screwed! & spending my time trying to put pages back together would *definitely not* be a way I'd like to spend my time lol. Best & blessings.
