Harvard Scientists Confirm That This Book Is Really Covered in the Skin of a Dead Woman
The creepiest book ever?
This book is covered in human flesh. Really.
Harvard scientists confirmed today that a volume in one of its libraries contained a book that is “without a doubt” bound in human skin.
The phenomenon is called anthropodermic bibliopegy and it used to be fairly common until — well, frankly, we stopped doing that kind of thing.
There were three such books suspected to be in the Harvard libraries, but testing found that two of the three were actually bound in sheepskin.
The final book in the triumvirate is authentically human.
