AMBIGRAMS

Ambigrams are typographical design or artform that may be read not only in its form as presented, but also from another viewpoint, direction, orientation. I was first exposed to ambigrams when I encountered them in Dan Brown's novel, "Angels and Demons". Since then, I have been designing my own ambigrams, mostly as gifts for friends and people I meet in my travels.

Below are a few of the ambigrams i made (there are many more for which I have no documentation).
