Calavera Books is a new independent publishing house. We make and publish books! Currently ebooks only, but with luck, the future will hold print books too.
Logo types to explore
Calavera Books is looking to develop a classical-themed, Spanish-and-Mexcan-inspired logo that is at once classic and fun. The current theme for the site at www.calaverabooks.com is a good place to start - that kind of old, parchment-styled theme will eventually be updated, but to something that is very like that. Think the kind of look that wouldn't look out of place in a Drake's Fortune game or Indiana Jones movie. The current typeface on that webpage is perfect, that old, heavy font, but the logo itself should be fairly light. Calavera is Spanish for skeleton, and it's used in various Day of the Dead celebrations. A great addition to the logo would be something like the character of Manny Calavera from the Grim Fandango adventure game: http://fc04.deviantart.net/fs46/f/2009/234/2/4/Manny_Calavera___Grim_Fandango_by_rmda.jpg But I have to stress, any logo using a skeleton-oriented theme should be light, and fun. No heavy metal skull motifs, please!
