I've been busy working on The Town of Kinship Book. The picture above is the initial cover mock up. I was trying to come up with an idea for the cover when I thought about creating a town seal, and then a motto. So I thought why not put the seal on the cover? I think it looks good, but I may make a few changes.
I really think the seal came out fairly good, but I might work on it a little more.
I'm really not that good at Latin, and had to use an online resource to translate the town motto, which is Embrace the Mystery. The closest I could get was Amplexo Mysterium, well, I think it's close. I could have used Carpe Mysterium, but I didn't really like it. In fact carpe doesn't really mean seize in Latin. It's correct definition is pick, pluck, cull, or gather.
I thought about using De Brevitate Vitae as the motto given the nature of the Town of Kinship.
