Book Launch – “Scrimshaw on Nantucket: The Collection of the Nantucket Historical Association” by Stuart M. Frank

Join us at the Quaker Meeting House for the book launch of Scrimshaw on Nantucket: The Collection of the Nantucket Historical Association by Dr. Stuart M. Frank, one of the world’s foremost scrimshaw experts. This highly anticipated book takes a holistic approach to illustrate the many different kinds of scrimshaw in the NHA collection – including teeth and tusks, as well as swifts, busks, toys, and many other household objects and tools made from ivory.

Dr. Stuart Frank will be speaking at 9:30 AM with a book signing to follow.

Coffee and pastries will be served.
