This notepad with drawings of a uterus was conceived and created by Jolie Stahl and Kiki Smith for The A. More Store they jointly organized for COLAB in 1983. Stahl’s image reproduces a drawing she herself made; Smith appropriated an existing image. The images appear on alternating pages with each of the multiple sheets of paper that make up the notepad containing one or the other. COLAB’s various gift shops in the early 1980s often went under the name “The A. More. Store.” Their emphasis was on artist-made, low-priced multiples with broad popular appeal. Many items had a utilitarian function like this notepad.
