Meh. Not impressed. Blood is easily drawn and regenerates fairly quickly. Now anthropodermic bibliopegy— there’s real commitment.

Book made with Sachin Tendulkar’s blood to cost £49,000
In a bizarre marketing strategy, a luxury book publisher is bringing out a special edition biography of Tendulkar with pages made from his blood. The “blood edition”, which also includes unpublished family pictures and Tendulkar’s thoughts about his career, weighs 37kg and contains 852 pages all edged in gold leaf, the Guardian reports. Due to be released next February, The Tendulkar Opus has a price tag of £49,000. Only 10 copies will ever be made and all have been pre-ordered.
