OUTSTANDING ACADEMIC TITLE ~ CHOICE, 2003
“This excellent publication builds on the earlier [above] publication. It has broadened the scope to include artists from throughout the US, rectified…omission of African American artists… and concentrated on 88 artists…excellent layout and superb photographs. Highly recommended”~ CHOICE,

2005 WRITERS NOTES BOOK AWARDApril 19, 2005
“Herskovic overviews American abstract expressionism with this hefty volume of plates. Beyond the names you’ll immediately recognize (Pollack, DeKooning, Gorky, etc.) this alphabetically arranged set takes a fair and complete look, including commentary from the artists…. We like Kline’s ideas on size and space and also when DeKooning says, “spiritually I am wherever my spirit allows me to be.” American Abstract should be a fixture in libraries and the homes of the lovers of the form
.”

“Researchers will seek out this well designed selection.”
~Library Journal August 2003.
