We've pondered what to make with a 3D printer before, but I don't think any of our musings have included "book cover" in the mix. However, that's what Helen Yentus, the art director of Riverhead Books, designed  for Chang-rae Lee’s new novel, On Such a Full Sea. According to MakerBot Stories:
A second, limited edition of the novel comes in a sleek white slipcase made on the MakerBot Replicator 2 Desktop 3D Printer that evokes the futuristic setting of the novel. In the video, Yentus shares her early pencil sketches and describes how they evolved into the 3D printed slipcase, which she designed in collaboration with the MakerBot Studio.
