For the last year and a half, I have been working on a book, to be published by Johns Hopkins University Press. It will be a popular mathematics book, hopefully accessible to everyone. The twist is that whenever it makes sense, figures in the book will be photos of 3D prints that readers can download and print for themselves, buy online, or rotate around on screen.
The book will hopefully be out around September 2016. If you'd like a sneak peek, the work-in-progress website for the book (thanks Jared Shay for helping me with it!) is at: http://3dprintmath.com
