Supplemental Materials

What is included with this book?


Sketchbooks, according to Alice Maher, are the ‘freewheeling workshops of the mind ... the pool in which thousands of images and ideas float freely, rubbish and gems together, bumping into each other, some surfacing, others staying in the depths for years, waiting to be remembered’. Reservoir showcases Alice Maher’s never-before-seen collection of sketchbooks and notebooks spanning her entire career so far. These colorful, playful and evocative documents are placed alongside some of Maher’s pivotal artworks, inviting the reader to study how the artist drew from her ‘reservoir’ to form the cornerstones of her career. The book allows an exploration of the complex flow between inspiration and finished pieces. Beautifully crafted and designed with a full and innovative engagement with the material, Reservoir draws from Alice Maher’s celebrated body of work to become a work of art in itself.
