As both a bibliophile and logophile, this is just the kind of news story that catches my eye. I'd love to discover a book that can summon the devil or turn whoever reads it into stone or something. I also love that there's a term for the practice of binding books in human skin (see title), although it is a slightly disturbing thing to do. Unless of course the donor has specifically requested it. I guess if I never end up writing a book, I could have one bound in my skin. It would have to be a good one though, perhaps a classic like Jane Eyre or The Wind in the Willows.
It's one (albeit freakish and scary) way to achieve literary immortality.
