at the sign of the CROWN & BOOK.
Whidbey Island, WA artist, Paul A. McClintock, specializes in the craft of 18th-century bookbinding. Growing up in a household of talented artisans, Paul learned many traditional 18th-century disciplines from his parents and was involved in living history events throughout the Midwest during his youth. For a period of time Paul served as an interpreter at the historic Daniel Boone Home in Defiance, MO, leading tours and demonstrations about the daily life of the Boone family. Paul's hand-made journals, sketchbooks and ledgers can be found in museums, historical sites and personal collections of many notable Living History interpreters.
Paul has been traveling coast to coast demonstrating his bookbinding skills. He was invited to participate in the opening festivities of the Fred W. Smith National Library for the study of George Washington at Mount Vernon as well as Ronald Reagan Presidential Library's Colonial American Experience. Annual events include Market Fair at Historic Fort Frederick in Maryland, the 18th century Market and Fair at George Washington's Mount Vernon Estate in Virginia and the Simple Treasures Show of Historic Walker Homestead in Brookfield, Massachusetts.
Paul's books are now offered for sale at the Prentis Shop and Post Office at Colonial Williamsburg in Virginia.
