The Necronomicon?!

My guess is it's the Necronomicon:
Ancient Book May Be Covered in Human Skin
LONDON - A 300-year-old book that appears to be bound in human skin has been found in northern England, police said Saturday.

The macabre discovery was made on a central street in Leeds, and officers said the ledger may have been dumped following a burglary.
Or, more likely, the thief was dragged away by a Shoggoth.
In a brief statement, West Yorkshire police said the ledger, which contained handwriting in black ink, appears to date back to the 1700s, and they appealed to anyone who may be able to help identify the owners of the item to contact authorities.

West Yorkshire Police put two photographs of the book on their Web site, but officers were unable on Saturday to answer any questions about it, including the book's subject matter.
Can't, or won't?

As if the world weren't turning Lovecraftian enough.

Maybe that's why so many people these days seem to be gripped by insanity.
ph'nglui mglw'nafh Cthulhu R'lyeh wgah'nagl fhtagn
In R'lyeh dead Cthulhu lies dreaming.
Perhaps for not much longer?
