September 2009 marks the publication of 60 Years of North American Prints by David Acton, a hardcover history of the Boston Printmakers and their long tradition of promoting and presenting contemporary prints. This 204 page, full-color volume chronicles the growth and expansion of the print medium since 1947 through sixty prints carefully selected by David Acton—exemplary works that he describes as “astute and flawless impressions made by some of the finest printmakers working in drastically changing times.” Acton has written extensive essays for each of the sixty artists and a historical overview of printmaking in North America since the 1940s.
