From Library Journal:

This impressive compendium features the prints, rather than the paintings, of 100 abstract expressionist artists, including such giants as Jackson Pollack and Mark Rothko as well as such lesser-known figures as Seong Moy and Hugo Weber. Each artist is represented by a full-page reproduction of one print and a one-page biographical and critical sketch by Acton, the curator of prints, drawings, and photographs at the Worcester Art Museum. Almost all of the prints come from the collection of the Worcester, where the accompanying exhibition originated. Introductory essays by musician David Amram and poet David Lehman relate the abstract expressionist movement to its historical and artistic context, with emphasis on the relationships between writers and artists in New York City in the Forties and Fifties. In addition to the visual treats it offers, this catalog is a valuable addition to the literature on the breadth and depth of abstract expressionist printmaking. Recommended for academic, larger public, and specialized art libraries. Kathryn Wekselman, MLn, Cincinnati

From Publishers Weekly:

Though abstract expressionists made a cult of drip and brushstroke, many of them also created beautiful, strange and energetic prints. A spectacular accompaniment to an exhibit at the Worcester (Mass.) Museum of Art, The Stamp of Impulse: Abstract Expressionist Prints presents 100 such prints from dozens of artists, among them De Kooning, Frankenthaler, Gottlieb and Kline. Curator David Acton not only introduces the collection but writes at length about each print. Composer David Amram and poet-critic David Lehman add essays about these artists' links to music and poetry. 109 color plates, 43 b&w.
