Chang-rae Lee’s On Such a Full Sea is available today (January 7, 2014) in a special limited edition with what the publisher, Riverhead Books, is calling the first-ever 3D-printed slipcover.

The result is a collaboration with the 3D-printing company Makerbot. The white slipcover, into which the book fits neatly, features the letters of the title rising off the surface at an angle, and the idea all along was to do something unlike anything ever seen in the world of publishing.

Designed by Riverhead’s art director, Helen Yentus, each individual slip cover took 15 hours to print and only 200 signed copies are for sale.

Lee will be reading from “On Such a Full Sea” on January 16th at 7pm at the MakerBot Store, in New York. Space is limited, so please register in advance HERE.
