In an age of Kindles and iPads, library artists like Thatcher Wine are giving books a new lease on life. They're creating curated and designed collections to meet the needs of clients who want real books in their homes. From Wine's company, Juniper Books, this set marries music and literature, looks great and includes literary classics by Joseph Conrad, Charles Dickens, Umberto Eco, Gustav Flaubert, Nikolai Gogol, Jane Austen, Emily Bronté, and Wilkie Collins. (The first letters of their last names -- C, D, E, F, G, A, B, C -- form an octave.) Published by Everyman's Library, all the books are new. Designed by Wine, using a photo he shot of a 1930s Steinway, the jackets are printed on tear and water-resistant paper. About 9"w x 8"h x 5"d. Eight books.
