The collection covers a relatively narrow slice of Reese's career, with the bulk of the material dating from the 1980s. Most of the collection documents the writing, design, and production of the 1984 Mary Balcomb book William F. Reese, which was published by Reese's own publishing company, Blue Raven Publishing. All aspects of the book are covered from the earliest drafts through final publication. Post-publication marketing and sales are also documented. The painting workshops conducted by Reese during the 1980s are another major focus of the collection. Correspondence with workshop participants provides insight into Reese's abilities as an art instructor and his philosophy of art and art education. The collection also includes general correspondence primarily focusing on Reese's art and art-related activities. Correspondents include artists Clyde Aspevig, Mel Fillerup, Ramon Kelly, Ben Stahl, and Hollis Williford. Other collection material includes some scattered financial records and publicity news clippings. The bulk of the photographs are from the book, many with crop marks and other notations; 4 x 5 transparencies of Reese paintings featured in the book are also included.
