Personal skin bindings
A poet in Springfield Oregon wanted his works bound in his own skin when he died.
His widow attempted to comply with his wishes, but it never happened:
from News of the weird
"1994 -- Rachel Barton-Russell petitioned a court in Springfield, Ore., in February for a ruling on the meaning of the state's law against corpse abuse. Her deceased husband, Donal Eugene Russell, had declared in his will that he wanted his skin used to make book covers for a collection of his poetry, but the state Mortuary and Cemetery Board claims that carrying out that request would subject a funeral home to liability for corpse abuse."
