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.

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.”
