What is the symbol on the front of the book?

Since “Alexandria Rising,” published last October, I have been asked on one than more occasion:

“What is the symbol on the front of the book?” 

or

“I’m sorry, I don’t speak that language?” (always the smart aleck in a group, right?) 

or

“So, are you ever going to let us know what this is about or do you just make up crazy letters for your books?” 

Well, here is your answer:

The symbol is The Slendoc Meridian. It is on the map that Henry O’Neal left to to Rand. It is present on the Atlantean stones that Rand sees in The Cavern. And it is present here in one of the early trailers.

It is part of the Atlantean alphabet you might say. Though I am not an expert philologist, I have been piecing this together along with the aid of the insightful Thomas J. Callahan, keeper of the Appendices for The Alexandria Rising Chronicles.

As we obtain more information, it will be released.
