The first 3D printed book cover has arrived! Chang-Rae Lee's 'On Such a Full Sea' is comprised of a white slip cover featuring typography which is risen from the surface of the book giving it a surreal and intriguing look. The slipcover was designed by Riverhead's art director Helen Yentus and took 30 hours to print! Needless to say the books are limited edition costing $150 ...
