Meet owners, Chris and Jackie!

These local Upper Dublin grads have settled in Jenkintown and are building Capricorn Books together around their interests in literature, art and music. Jackie is a food photographer and recipe developer; she’s the maker and curator of the shop. Chris is a musician, illustrator and the shop bookkeeper. Both share a love for sci-fi and fantasy - they first bonded over the love of the Harry Potter series in 2002. They love good food, spending time outdoors, playing tabletop games and of course, reading.

Together with their son Ridley, and two (stay at home) bookshop cats, Hilda and Zelda, they are looking forward to growing this store with the local community!
