Judging books by their covers . . .
A story in the Boston Globe reports how some of America's libraries contain books that are bound with human skin. Apparently it's not an uncommon practice - with anthropodermic bound books often reflecting their content - such as biographies and medical texts. The story was taken up by Harvard Law School journal, The Record a month before and seems to be causing a stir on the blogs.
