daguerreotype – n. the first successful photographic process

Classical Usage:  When she introduces us to Uncle Tom, Harriet Beecher Stowe tells us, “At this table was seated Uncle Tom, Mr. Shelby’s best hand, who, as he is to be the hero of our story, we must daguerreotype for our readers,”  I love how she verbs it.  In chapter 15 she does use it literally, in case you’re in to that kind of thing.

Classically Mad Usage:  Do you see today’s picture?  I used the photo effect from called daguerreotype.  Maybe this should be the official photo-effect of A Classic Case of Madness.
