I’ve seen this in countless magazines and design sites, a favourite of interior designers and set designers – using books as decor, art, highlight. I love collecting beautifully bound versions of classics I’ve read in the past. I dig through book sales and antique shops in search of (if you’re lucky) leather-bound and engraved books.
Juniper Books can turn any book into a work of art – from classics to cookbooks. The design and print custom book jackets and covers in different genres. These make the perfect gifts for someone who has everything… or for anyone who loves books.
For a very limited time – like three days – these book collections and services from Juniper Books are on sale at One Kings Lane. All photos and text below, from OKL.
