Re: [BKARTS] Harvard Law School's "The Record" - Human Skin article



Interesting article. I faded out during the discussion of human-skin
binding. Did anyone mention Peter Greenaway's film, "The Pillow Book"?
This film contains my favorite examples of anthropodermic bibliopegy.

As there was a recent discussion on human skin and bookbinding, I thought
that
this article published yesterday in The Record and written by a Harvard 3L
might be of interest:
