    Attention Painters, Designers, Graphic and Tattoo Artists: This is the most comprehensive reference to marine scrimshaw images I've found. It's not an expensive coffee table book with mere dozens of photos, but rather almost 200 total pure images --so many that are not viewable anywhere else. This will be a superb reference for the Tattoo, painting and graphic artists I know in Provincetown MA.
