New Dystopian Novel To Have 3-D Art Cover

17 Dec

Next month author Chang-rae Lee has a new dystopian novel coming out, and it is set to be released with a limited-edition 3-D printed art cover!  Called On Such a Full Sea, its 3-D slip-cover will be printed on a MakerBot Replicator 2 Desktop 3D Printer. Only 200 will be made, and each will cost $150. It’s not particularly practical, but it is rad!

Lee’s release is on Riverhead Books, a division of Penguin, and reminds me of Jaded Ibis’ project “Legend“, in which globes were created out of 3-D printed sections of The Book of Earths. I hope Lee’s release is a sign more publishers and writers will fully embrace book projects as works of art, and stretch into cross-media forms of expression.
