Shakespeare in 3D

A new book sculpture I’ve made is The Complete Works of William Shakespeare.

This is a miniature book – 2.375″ x 1.875″ x .75″ and the box is 3.75″ x 3.25″ x 1.1.25″

Inside the 3D printed translucent PLA covers are a title page in the front and an author portrait in the back.  Inside is a USB flash drive containing a text file of the complete works of William Shakespeare.  I designed the book cover and box in Tinkercad and printed it with a Makerbot Replicator 2 using a translucent PLA plastic.  The interior images are printed with an Epson R1900 inkjet printer. It is presented in a “hand-made” silver PLA 3D printed box with a blue velvet lining. The book is published in an edition of 10.






I have also completed a full size version of the book – 5.875″ x 4.875″ x 0.75″
