* At one point in the ''[[{{Belgariad}} Mallorean]]'', Belgarath finds that the scroll holding a prophecy he seeks was made of human skin. This frustrates him, however, because human skin is ''terrible'' at holding ink, and the prophecy is now unreadable.

* In ''[[VideoGame/TheElderScrollsVSkyrim Skyrim]]'', the [[http://images.wikia.com/elderscrolls/images/d/da/Skyrim_oghma_infinium.png Oghma Infinium]] appears to be bound with the skin of every race of Mer you collected blood from to get it.
** ''[[http://www.imperial-library.info/content/confessions-khajiit-fur-trader Confessions of a Khajiit Fur Trader]]'' is exactly what it says on the cover: The tale of a Khajiit who made an absolute fortune selling the pelts of his fellow cat-folk, as well as Argonian leather. It all began with his brother's hide and went downhill from there.
** Based on some of their dialogue, it's implied that the Forsworn's armour is made from the tanned skins of the people they killed. The Forsworn are not nice people. At all.

* There are examples that still exist of books bound in human skin. [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Anthropodermic_bibliopegy There's even a proper term for it]]. It's not even prohibitively expensive to buy a 19th century volume bound in human skin, and [[https://roadtrippers.com/blog/harvard-discovers-three-of-its-library-books-are-bound-in-human-flesh three such books have been found in the possession of Harvard]]. Don't worry ''too'' much though: the skin was usually a byproduct of the dissection of cadavers in anatomy classes, and when it wasn't it was most often done at the request of the deceased in their will. There are also a few documented cases where the published records of the trials for particularly grisly murders were bound in the skin of the executed murderer, but these were the exception, not the rule.
