Ok, that jacket is fucking sick.

I read the subject, and thought it would be cool in a fucked up sort of way, but no.  It's just fucked up.

This is synthetic.  I read a story somewhere on the net a couple of months ago about books bound in human skin.  Apparently it was all the rage in the 19th century for special volumes, especially some medical volumes, to be bound in human skin.  A good number of those still exists in librarys all over the country.  Not like out on the shelves, but in special collections under lock and key.  I think one of the volumes they described was a book about a particular rare disease, bound with the skin of the patient who was first diagnosed with that disease.  I might be making that up.  Most of the subjects used as bindings were convicts sentenced to death.

It was morbidly fascinating.  This is just morbidly gimmicky.

Tin ogre, Im fairly certain your post is complete BS.  Only one book I know of is bound in human flesh, skin and bone.

We now have the technology to recreate the Necronomicon!  Who wants to lose their sanity and be author?  Any volunteers?

I was gonna jump in here and be all, "tiny ogre's not makin' it up.  I read it to!  I got yer back, bro."

But then I saw you'd already set the record straight.  Is there anything you Blizzard boys can't do?  :wink:

OK, Tiny Ogre is right and I am wrong.  It just sounded too much like an urban myth to me, so I didn't believe until I just saw that.  

Also, am I the only person who thought,"Great, now my costume as a Fetch can be complete for Halloween this year!"?
