The exact reproduction was painted by Nebraska State Historical Society staff artist Curt Peacock. The original painting is now in Santa Fe in the Museum of New Mexico.

The front cover painting of the Johnson County Courthouse in Tecumseh was done by well-known Nebraska artist Ralph Hawkins of Hebron. Hawkins, whose painting was an avocation during his many years as a hardware merchant, has been working in a downtown Hebron studio since his retirement in 1969. Working in watercolors, he favors old and familiar subjects: bridges, wooden elevators, courthouses, barns, and depots. The Johnson County Courthouse painting is now owned by Mike and Susan Grieger of Lincoln. Front and back cover photos are by Roger Bruhn.
