Curated Book Collections

Posted on November 12, 2011 by - Photos

At Juniper Books, we handpick / curate all book collections one volume at a time.  Thatcher has extensive experience building book collections of all types and is personally involved in every project.

A very small percentage of our offerings are now available in our online store – for most of our book styles and extensive personalized services it is best to contact us directly – no two projects are the same.
