Paul A. McClintock is an artist from Whidbey Island, Washington, who specializes in the craft of 18th-Century reproduction bookbinding. Growing up in a household of talented artisans, he learned many traditional 18th-Century disciplines from his parents—his father, a gunsmith, and his mother, a hearth cook. As a family they were involved in living history events throughout the Midwest.
For a time, McClintock served as an interpreter at the historic Daniel Boone Home in Defiance, Missouri, leading tours and demonstrations about the daily life of the Boone family.
A profound love of old books led McClintock to his current passion of bookbinding. His hand-made journals, sketchbooks, and ledgers can be found in museums, historical sites, and personal collections of many notable living history interpreters. He has been a featured demonstrator at the Colonial American Experience held at the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library and has participated in the 18th-Century Colonial Market and Fair held at George Washington’ Mount Vernon Estate, Maryland’s Historic Fort Frederick Market Fair, and the Simple Treasures Show of Historic Walker Homestead in Massachusetts.
