There are definitely scores of disturbing books buried in the stacks of Harvard, but researchers at the Houghton Library have finally confirmed that one of those creepy books trumps them all. Why? Because it's bound in human skin, that's why. Ludovic Bouland (a medical doctor and reported bibliophile) apparently lifted the skin off an unclaimed deceased mental patient and bound his copy of French author Arsene Houssaye's "Des destinées de l'ame." Translation: "Destinies of the Soul."
"A book about the human soul deserved to have a human covering," scribbled the shifty doctor in a note tucked within the pages of the book. "By looking carefully you easily distinguish the pores of the skin." Fortunately for Mark Zuckerberg, the skin was taken from a woman's back, thereby side-stepping scores of "Harvard's Real Facebook" headlines.
