Along the way, Rosenbloom tells the story of how her team of scientists, curators, and librarians test rumored anthropodermic books, untangling the myths around their creation and reckoning with the ethics of their custodianship.

A librarian and journalist, Rosenbloom is a member of The Order of the Good Death and a cofounder of their Death Salon, a community that encourages conversations, scholarship, and art about mortality and mourning. In Dark Archivescaptivating and macabre in all the right waysshe has crafted a narrative that is equal parts detective work, academic intrigue, history, and medical curiosity a book as rare and thrilling as its subject.
