Dissecting The Author

Join Surgeons Hall Museum as we explore how surgery and the history of medicine has inspired authors and their work.

In this online event Surgeons Hall Museums Human Remains Conservator Cat Irving will be joined by Megan Rosenbloom’s author of Dark Archives .

Dark Archives explores the world of anthropodermic bibliopegy – the practice of binding books in human skin. Cat Irving, in conversation with Megan Rosenbloom, will explore the history of this practice, and the skin-bound books that can be found around the world.

It is not necessary to have read Dark Archive by Megan Rosenbloom to join this event but if you would like to purchase a copy of the book it can be found here:
