Welcome to the Antique Scrimshaw Collectors Association. Our mission: To promote and protect the trade, collection and study of antique scrimshaw, the historic and culturally important folk art of the whaleman.
The Fall 2020 issue of the Scrimshaw Observer can be found here. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, a separate Spring issue of the Observer was not published and thus this is a special double-issue, edited by Dr. Stuart Frank. This issue features articles by scrimshaw artist Ryan Cooper and Dr. Frank, and a substantial scrimshaw market report by Andy Jacobson.
