We're a team of passionate book & design enthusiasts dedicated to creating one-of-a-kind book collections and libraries tailored to our client's unique tastes and preferences.
To ensure authors are compensated, our book curator partners with reputable publishers, guaranteeing that they receive proper compensation for their writings.
Our book jackets are meticulously designed and hand-folded onto each book in our Boulder, Colorado studio with great care and attention to detail.
At Juniper Custom Custom, we pride ourselves on providing personalized attention and exceptional service to every client. While we acknowledge that our commitment to quality and care may come at a cost, we firmly believe it's a worthwhile investment that sets us apart.
Thatcher Wine, our founder, invented custom book jackets between 2008 and 2010. Our custom covers can change the look and color of any hardcover book, turn bookshelves into art installations, unify a home design, show off a corporate brand, and so much more. United States Patent No. 9,349,308 was granted to Thatcher and Juniper Books in 2016. Our expertise in creating a mural image across the spines of books is protected by patent law. We are recognized as masters of our art.
