The cover shows a structure based on topological interlocking of elements based on matching of curved contact surfaces. These structures offer flexible structures highly tolerant to local failures and are especially promissing with brittle materials. More about topological interlocking can be found in the paper by Dyskin, Estrin et al. on page 116.
