Pen & Paper

Isabella Stewart Gardner’s era was the golden age of letter writing. At the heart of the Gardner collection lays an archive of hundreds of letters and documents from some of the greatest artists, writers, celebrities and thinkers of all time. These preserved documents give us great insight into Gardner's historical moment. 

Gift at the Gardner offers a collection of note cards, journals, fine papers, and writing instruments that inspire visitors to write down their thoughts, and perhaps leave them as a record for the future. Shop our entire Pen & Paper Collection A-Z below!
