Originating in the late 1940s and grown from the bohemian artist communities of America, the Beat Generation sought to transform literature into an expression of genuine lived experience. Rebelling against the perceived joylessness and consumerism of post-war society at that time, the Beat Generation writers subverted literary norms and expectations. Often performing their experimental free-flowing works aloud and accompanied by jazz.
From Ferlinghetti's and Snyder's poetry to Kerouac's On the Road and The Dharma Bums, this set of six includes some of the greatest works of this movement.
Inspired by the smokey cafes where these artists spent their time writing and performing, our limited palette design evokes this unique literary movement.

Customizing a Juniper Books Set
- We are thrilled to offer a customization option for (almost) every set that is available from Juniper Books. Customization is a great way to make a set one-of-a-kind for your collection, or to create the perfect gift.
- The entire process takes place here on junipercustom.com. The price you see on this page is for the book set on its own. As you add personalized flap text and/or a custom color, the price for those additional services will be added to the total price for your order when you press Add to Cart.
- If you would like to order multiple customized sets, please add them to your cart one at a time. The personalization options chosen will save with each book set.
- Once we receive your order, we will contact you if we have any questions. Otherwise, we will custom make your set. The process typically takes 1-2 weeks and you will receive a shipping notification when the books are on their way.
