The Seals

'set me like a seal on your heart...'

                                                                                                                              
As a symbolic representation of the themes, characters, setting and interpretation of Liberty & Property, there are The Seals. There is one to accompany each volume of the saga. Some of the representations will change as the series progresses and some will remain. They also depict constitutional themes. Each seal is named.

                                                                                                                            

The four representations sit on a water-marked wagon wheel. The Taylor family motto, We Will Not Be Slaves, appears in the ribbon at the bottom. The smaller writing at the center of the wheel reads The birthright we hold.
