Imagine having a custom-designed library perfectly tailored to your home and interests. Thatcher Wine, founder of Boulder, Colo.-based Juniper Books, makes these types of literary dreams a reality by curating customized book collections and complete libraries that cater to his clients’ unique needs.
What started off as a hobby, collecting and selling rare books, has turned into a fascinating and lucrative business venture for Wine. He’s been curating private and public libraries since the early 2000s, and in 2010 he branched off to invent custom book jackets that, when pushed together, form a single cohesive design across a volume of books. “I have really combined two things — what the books look like, with the content my clients want — to create personalized collections,” Wine says.
