Ambigrams

20 Feb

I have not been feeling well today, so it’s going to be another short post. Whilst thinking of what to write about, I remembered something really interesting that I had read about in Angels and Demons. The book features a number of ambigrams. These are essentially words written in such a way such that they look the same from another angle (often upside down) as they do normally. Here is an ambigram of my name that I found here.

    Very cool, Michael – yours looks a lot easier to read than some of them. Sadly, there is no “Sandra.”

    Hope you feel better soon.

    HaHa! Very interesting! This reminds me of the “Illuminati” in the Da Vinci Code! 🙂

    I wish they had mine too, unfortunately none of my two names were there. 😦

    I just tried out ‘superjess’ on the FlipScript Ambigram Generator, and it actually came up with a few different choices.

    In fact, I can’t stump it! The FlipScript generator seems to create an ambigram out of just about anything you type in.
