    As you guys might know, the new Dan Brown book is coming out on Sept. 15th:

    However, he always likes to hide things in his covers, which reveal more information about the book.
    He released a PDF file so that the artwork can be seen clearly. The link:

    Things that I found so far:

    On the wax seal it says:
    -Ordo Ab Chao, which means order from chaos.
    -There is the number 33

    When I googled it, I found that it is the jewel of the 33rd degree, which belongs to the freemasons. Dan Brown said that the book is going to revolve around freemasonry and will take place in Washington D.C.

    On the top there are 34 symbols in a row, which cannot be the alphabet, yet is one more than 33, so I don't know how to decode it. This could possibly be the alphabet, so that all the other symbols on the cover can make sense.

    This is where I am stuck. Does anyone know more about the cover / Can someone help me find more clues??

    ok interesting note- it comes out on sept 15th which is 9/15/09. If you add up 9+15+9=33. 33 is a big number for this book
