Haunted Book

This story about a C17th book about the execution of a priest and covered in his skin, and now appears to show an image of his face is sooo spooky ....

(For other cases of anthropodermic bibliopegy you might like to glance back at this post.)

BTW this phenomenon is called pareidolia. The Folklorist has a collection of these pareidolic images!
