Chang-rae Lee’s 3-D Printed Slipcover

Acclaimed author and this week’s guest editor of Electric Literature’s Recommended Reading, Chang-rae Lee’s new novel, On Such a Full Sea, just came out. To celebrate, Riverhead Books, Lee’s publishers, went to MakerBot to create a limited edition run of the book featuring a 3D-printed slipcover.

Here’s how and why it happened:
