About

When his Internet startup fizzled in 2001, Thatcher starting selling books online as a hobby while trying to figure out “the next big thing.”  For a few years, people thought he was crazy to be doing anything related to old fashioned printed books when e-books were starting to take off.  Fast forward 13 years and Juniper Books is a successful, rapidly growing company with multiple employees in Boulder, Colorado hard at work creating the future of books.

There are two main components of our business – the first is curating custom libraries and book collections for homeowners, interior designers, architects, real estate developers, visual merchandisers, restaurants, hotels, and other clients.  These projects range in size from one hundred to several thousand books.  The focus of these projects ranges from curated libraries (requested authors and subjects) to purely decorative collections (books by color, binding style, size, etc.) or a combination of the two . . . which is really our specialty.  For these projects it’s best to contact us directly at 303-946-1494 or e-mail thatcher@juniperbooks.com.

The second part of our business is focused on the book sets that we curate and/or customize with book jackets of our design.  Our Online Store is open 24/7 and features book sets including the Works of Jane Austen and Ernest Hemingway, Harry Potter Sets in four different styles, curated collections of Penguin Books, wonderful classics for children, and much more.  These products all make great additions to a library and fantastic gifts.  What they have in common is that they are great books AND are attractive on the shelf.

Juniper Books has been featured in publications including The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal and Fine Books & Collections.  We offer our books frequently through our partnerships with Gilt  and OneKingsLane.com.  Our products have been featured in the gift guides of Goop.com, The Daily Candy, Vogue Magazine and others.

Recent projects have included the library for the 2012 Architectural Digest Greenroom at the Academy Awards, books for the Nomad Hotel in New York City, and Yoo Panama by Philippe Starck.
