San Angelo author Elmer Kelton has been voted the best Western writer of all time. Here his name is rendered in rusty nails on wood, similar to the grave markers found in the cemetary at the abandoned mining town of Terlingua, on the Mexican border, in the Big Bend region. The tooled leather "buckle" was made at a saddle shop in Austin, where the silver chingaderos were picked up for the left hand side. Kelton's photo was appropriately burned around the edges and nailed to a board, for the final photo shoot.
The poster was printed on heavy stock, 4-color process, with a touch-plate of yellow, and a touch-plate of metallic silver, which is picked up in Kelton's b&w photo, and in the rusty nails, all courtesy of Williamson Printing Corporation, Dallas, the best printer in the country.
