Megan Rosenbloom joins Ben and guest cohost Tanya Marsh for a discussion about Megan’s new book Dark Archives: A Librarian’s Investigation into the Science and History of Books Bound in Human Skin (Farrar, Straus & Giroux, 2020). Megan built a team of experts to test the validity of books claimed to be covered in the skin of human beings and traveled the world to find out more about the people and processes that led to both real and debunked works of anthropodermic bibliopegy.
