Fascinating read ...

Every night I go to AZCentral and read the Buzz section. It's the wacky news and celebrity bits and bites (hm, that may be redundant) for the week or whathaveyou.

One particular noteworthy peice of info was about books actually bound in human flesh. I'd read about this before, years ago but totally forgot about it. Can you imagine reading a book that's cover is made of human skin - what the hell do you use for a bookmark, a tongue??



Anyway here is a pic I found from this site here which actually showed the books they were speaking about. Pretty cool idea for the author to use his hide to cover his book, much more personal than an autograph for sure!?!?!?!?
