“Life is like a beautiful melody, only the lyrics are messed up.”
― Hans Christian Andersen
  Translated by Erik Hougaard, this is the only version available in trade paperback that presents the fairy tales exactly as Andersen collected them in the original Danish edition in 1874. His notes accompany the text.

The fuel for this ravisher unicycle of a world,Going faster and faster, ever more horsepower,Is not the president of the United States anymore.The man on the roof of the car waves his arms.The butterfly in love lands on fresh tar, tacky goo.I’m turning into something I wasn’t intending to be—In agony after the awful metamorphosisInto a suddenly human being.

The fuel for this ravisher unicycle of a world,
Going faster and faster, ever more horsepower,
Is not the president of the United States anymore.
The man on the roof of the car waves his arms.
The butterfly in love lands on fresh tar, tacky goo.
I’m turning into something I wasn’t intending to be—
In agony after the awful metamorphosis
Into a suddenly human being.

Frederick Seidel, from “Autumn Leaves”

This signed limited edition of On Such a Full Sea by Chang-Rae Lee, published by Riverhead Books, features the world’s first 3D-printed book cover. The slipcase was made by Brooklyn’s Makerbot using a bioplastic made of corn.
Lovely to see another technology join the existing arsenal of print whimsy, currently consisting mostly of die-cut ingenuity and pop-up paper architecture. 

The way of the future!
