Juniper Books Curated Sets & Jackets

Juniper Books Curated Sets & Jackets

Looking to add a little extra wow to your bookshelf or desk, or searching for a nice set of books to gift? Check out the beautiful, creative book covers from Juniper Books. I first discovered their “Read Me” classics set (on the top shelf in their photo above) a few years ago; the set includes works by Dostoyevsky, Hugo, Dumas, and Poe. A few other of my favorites are below, but they have dozens to choose from, including fiction, non-fiction, and children’s books. For a couple of popular series, you can purchase the book jackets alone. They also do custom projects, which look amazing!

 

 

If you love interesting bookshelves, I recommend Bookshelf, by Alex Johnson. Lots of unusual and interesting bookshelves.

So tiny! Jozsef Tari has over 4,500 miniature books in his collection. He also has the world’s smallest newspaper, which measures 19×26 mm.

Paintings by Stanford Kay. Kay is currently featured in a solo exhibition at BLANK SPACE through February 4, 2011.

San Francisco’s Andrea Schwartz Gallery will be showing new work of Cara Barer in a two-person show running November 17–December 22, 2010. Definitely check it out if you’re in SF — Cara’s archival digital photographs are absolutely stunning (click here for a previous post on her work).

From the press release: “In an age of when the Internet is quickly becoming the primary source of information, Barer’s photographs act as a lament for the passing of an era when books were considered a pathway to knowledge.”
