AMBIGRAMS


I hope most of u would have read the world famous book od DAN BROWN– “ANGELS AND DEMONS”..One of the most striking features of the book was the usage of special and unusual symbols which were never used by anybody in any other fiction..These are called as AMBIGRAMs , AMBI means both and GRAM means word..

An ambigram is a word written in such a way that it is legible both rightside-up and upside-down. Ambigrams are an ancient art form and play heavily into the mysteries of the book Angels & Demons.

These ambirams used in the book were specially designed by JOHN LANGDON who specializes in art design like this.

i have posted the ambigrams used in the book below..

 

I was quite amazed to see these ambigrams in the book while reading which seemed almost impossible to create. i became obsessed about the ambigrams so much that i even tried to create some ambigrams with my friends in my class hours..nowadays peaple are even interested in ambigram tattoo’s..

Once ,while searching for ambigrams in the NET ,i found an interesting website which claimed to generate ambigrams online..so i opened the site and to my surprise it was really working. i found it really interesting and tried many ambigrams in it ..
