My suggestion is to slip each print including the top one.  Then cut a 
carboard stiffner for the top and the bottom.  Then cut two strips of 
paper to go around the whole thing (top-bottom ... left to right).   
Pull them tight and tape them.  That should stop the prints from 
shifting around and abrading the ink.  I have used this method 
sucessfully while printing on rice paper.

Nocti nonesense... but is so stupid he carries a Nocti as the standard 
"carry" lens and uses it at all available apertures./
