I have no training in intaglio print methods but have a few etchings in the house that suggest Foster might be admired and emulated. My first look through "A Line in the Water" was nevertheless discouraging. Ackroyd's world had form, but it seemed soon to be without form and perhaps void. Back to the beginning. Certainly a world without lines. But as Dunn's introduction notes, there is "meteorological drama" (page 11) and with further viewing, the etchings confirm Dunn's comment that "the coastlines of the British Isles are probably the best thing about them" (page 10).
The book's quality of production is excellent, fine design and substantial paper, fitting for the publisher.
Some of those great Irish cliffs are now challenging (and much publicized) surfing spots. There's possibly a link between Ackroyd and a recent (2010) and commercial short video "The Dark Side of the Lens" by veteran in-the-water surf photographer Mickey Kennedy, about himself.
