Don’t forget, you've got love
You've got bravery, you’ve got trust
You’ve got bodies, responsibilities
There’s still mountains, they're pushing up from underneath
You’ve got pain, caused plenty of
It’s not so strange but now you’ve had enough
Don’t forget your bones and skin
Or where you go, or where you’ve been
-Mirah, Bones & Skin
I don't talk about this enough.
I have all the equipment needed to print and bind books in my apartment.
It's really easy.
1) Laser Printer with toner refills
2) Heavy Duty Paper Trimmer
3) Glue Binder
Non-essentials but nice to have:
1) Dremel/Rotary Tool
3) white glue
4) Inkjet printer
5) some kind of spray sealer
That's it. With the top three items, you can make objects that are reasonably durable and instantly recognizable as books.

In 2016, I published a paper in the TSQ titled:
“You Have Made Her a Man among Men”: Translating the Khuntha's Anatomy in Fatimid Jurisprudence
I discussed in it a case described in a Fatimid-era legal manual where a person had their body examined in order to be recognized as male and have a marriage voided.
