I had no idea “mural” was a word in English. Go figure...

It is exactly the same word in Portuguese. It is related to “muro” (wall).
From the Latin word for wall, murus.

Interestingly, in the English language, the word mural can be used in the same form as a noun, as an adjective, and as a verb. Nothing wrong with Andrew Hunter using the verb "muralized," but arguably in that context, he would have been more correct to say "about to be muralled." Why? Because to "mural" a wall is to create a piece of artwork on a wall, whereas the suffix "-ize" means to "conform to or resemble something," ie., "muralize" means to change something to resemble a mural. just a subtle difference.

Ok, thus ends the English lesson. :rolleyes:

I’d assume that all sales and contributions for this book will be forwarded onto the PAFC by the publisher?
Why? The PAFC arent the authors and AH isnt an employee.

Its not an official PAFC publication, so stupidly they arent promoting it and not stocking up at the Port Store. If they did they would be making the retailer's margin as several hundred copies have been sold. The Port Store took 20 copies and sold them out immediately but havent ordered anymore.

The retail $$$ margin per book is greater than the authors $$$ royalty fee per book.
