About the Cover Photograph

The portrait of Duke and Tami Sheppard, whose musical act Pint & A Half is featured in this issue, was taken by Salida photographer Tim Brown exclusively for our cover using a historic photographic technique called a tintype.
A tintype, also known as a melainotype or ferrotype, is a photograph made by creating a direct positive on a thin sheet of metal coated with a dark lacquer or enamel and used as the support for the photographic emulsion. Tintypes enjoyed their widest use during the 1860s and 1870s.
