"The Artist and the Garden" now on view at the Arts Library

The garden is often thought of as a place of tranquility and repose. With the cycle of growth and the seasons, it is also a place of creativity and renewal. A myriad of shapes, colors, textures, sounds, and smells offer inspiration to the artist. The book arts also offer myriad options for an artist to express their engagement with the garden. Along with the traditional codex, miniature, folio, and interactive non-codex formats, as well as colorful illustrations and typographic interpretations transport the reader to this place of beauty and wonder.

During the summer, SML will stay open later on Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday evenings, while late night hours on Thursdays in SML will continue as usual.

Maps in the Yale Library Collections
