    • The Beginning

      In 2001, after shuttering his Internet company, Thatcher spent a few days hunting for rare books with a friend in New England. “I was trying to come up with a big idea for what to do next,” he says. “I went back to LA, where I was living then, and went to an estate sale, picked up two books, and sold them. I was immediately hooked.” And so Juniper Books was started.

      The Beginning
      • The Book Covers

        In addition to sourcing books, Thatcher began designing charming covers for them. “I have an affinity for 18th-century engravings, 19th-century book bindings, and 20th-century book jackets,” he says. The elephant on the Hemingway set (left) was the first image he translated onto covers. “It was way too cool to keep hidden inside a book.”

        • The Custom Libraries

          Combining his design skills with his knack for hunting down books, Thatcher eventually started assembling libraries for private homes. “My work ranges from curating classical leather-bound libraries to much more modern and colorful creations,” he says. “People can personalize their home in an economical manner and with infinite possibilities with books.”

          • The Design Collaborations

            Since then he’s worked with decorators, restaurants, and even hotels. He recently completed a library at The NoMad, a boutique hotel in New York City (far left). “I love it when I can design or curate a collection of books that fits perfectly into a home library or other project in a way that a designer or homeowner didn’t really think was possible,” he says.
