An ambigram is a word or words lettered so as to be legible from more than one vantage point. Many exhibit rotational symmetry, reading the same when turned 180 degrees, but other ways are possible, such as reflective symmetry, which would read the same in a mirror. Making an ambigram is a creative exercise of give and take, balancing legibility and symmetry.
I am moving my gallery to Tumblr! I will be steadily adding examples of old and new work. Whenever something makes me think "I could do that much better now than I did then," that is what I'll do before adding it to the new gallery. If you liked the web better in the twentieth century, you can still look at the old gallery, frames and all.
