Boston, MA: The Boston Printmakers, 2009. Hardcover. VG. Black stamped cloth, black & illus. dust jacket, 204 pp., many color illus. "The annual exhibitions of the Boston Printmakers were a major inspiration [to participants]. ... Hundreds of artists and print lovers converged on the shows, and openings were filled with excitement. Artists shared details of their processes, burst into spontaneous critique sessions, and imparted so much passion that [participants] would feel stimulated for a full year until the next exhibition. ... David Acton has focused on artists who had exhibited with the Boston Printmakers to select sixty for the catalogue section of this book. His profound knowledge has resulted in a collection of works representing the breadth and democracy of the print medium while his writing captures the life and times of the people who made them. The essays present multi-faceted artists in the context of their eminence in the North American print world." (foreword) The annotated and illustrated catalogue presents all 60 pieces. Includes an illustrated chronology, an appendix listing all participating artists throughout the years, and brief bios of the 60 artists featured here. A scarce volume. (Inventory #: 151062)
