The Courtyard Book is placed throughout the museum, where guests are encouraged to read, relax and reflect on the
magnificent sights and sounds within the courtyard. The book provides insight into the significance of the objects and
their arrangement within the space. Book chapters are grouped by architecture, sculpture and flowers, all of which support Isabella Stewart Gardner’s vision to create an enchanting garden. Page sizes alternate between short and long, and filled
with sweeping views and close-ups of lush imagery, so guests may actively participate in a sensory experience.
