Collecting Nantucket: Artifacts from an Island Community is a copiously illustrated work that explores a hundred fascinating artifacts and documents from the NHA collection—including fine and decorative arts, furniture, costumes and textiles, whalecraft, technology, scrimshaw, manuscripts, and photographs.
Ranging from famous treasures to obscure gems, but always telling interesting stories of Nantucket, the content is drawn exclusively from the NHA’s permanent collection.
