Library Design and Curation with Thatcher Wine

Thatcher Wine Event
Thursday, November 7, 2019 - 6:00pm

Join Thatcher Wine for a night of design, literature, and libraries to celebrate his new book, For the Love of Books: Designing and Curating A Home Library.

Explore the significance of the home library, embellished with alluring photography and illustrations, in a keepsake worthy of any bibliophile's collection. For the Love of Books shares the vision of Juniper Books, a business that embraces the roles that books fulfill in our lives and their staying power. It recounts the history of books and private libraries, and champions the resilience of books in the digital era. Dive into the nuances that define books for reading, books for decoration, and books for inspiration. Instructive chapters provide useful details for creating and curating one's own home library, whether it be a single shelf or multiple rooms each with their own collection. You will never look at your bookshelves the same way again.

For the Love of Books is about storytelling beyond the pages of our favorite books. Our books--the ones we choose to keep--tell the story of who we are. They remind us who we once were and who we aspire to be.

“Whether the books are in our hands or on our shelves, their covers open or shut, they keep on telling stories... and so should we.”


Juniper books was founded in 2001 by Thatcher Wine. Thatcher had always loved reading and collecting books, he began his journey sourcing one-of-a-kind and rare book collections for clients around the world. A few years later, Thatcher invented custom book jackets and Juniper Books' customers fully embraced this new concept. Today they work with thousands of customers in 50+ countries, helping them rediscover the power of print.
