Thatcher started selling books online in 2001 and expected it to be just a part time, short term hobby. However, over the years, Juniper Books has evolved into something the world has never seen before – a business dedicated to personalizing, customizing and generally reinventing the concept of the printed book and “the library.”
Juniper Books has carved out a niche at the intersection of books and design by delivering a level of service, attention to detail and creativity that no bookseller has ever provided. To Thatcher, the possibilities of a custom library are endless – he personally designs and curates libraries of leather and vellum books; books by author, color, subject and/or size; or creations using various papers, fabrics, or custom printed book jackets.
Thatcher invented custom book jackets and launched them into the market in 2010. They are a product which can rapidly and economically change the look of any book. This innovative concept has attracted many fans among interior designers, architects, visual merchandisers and private clients around the world. Thatcher has a patent pending on the system for creating designs that span multiple book covers.
Thatcher’s work has been featured in publications including The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, Luxe, Veranda and Fine Books & Collections. Design-centric websites such as Gilt, OneKingsLane.com DesignSponge.com, Ahalife,, VandM.com, and Fab.com have discovered our unique creations and introduced them to their followers. Since launching the Juniper Books Online Store in late 2011 to sell just a few of the company’s ready made book sets, our products have been featured in the gift guides of Goop.com, Elle.com, The Daily Candy, and others.
Thatcher grew up in New York City where his parents owned and operated one of the most innovative restaurants in American culinary history: The Quilted Giraffe. Thatcher worked just about every job in the house and absorbed a thing or two about creativity and quality control from his parents. After graduating from Dartmouth College with a degree in History and Art History, he worked as a Strategy Consultant for The Monitor Company, then was a pioneering Business Development Executive and CEO in the early days of the Internet.
Thatcher lives in Boulder, Colorado with his wife and two children. He is an avid cyclist and skier.
