Tribute to John Langdon




This man is one of the inspirations for the main character in the DaVinci Code. I could go into all the things he has done for the world of design and typography, but I'll sum it up by just saying he kicks quite a bit of ass, and I want him in my arms. Here's some of his work. The man created an inversion from PAUL MCARTNEY!

After I read "Angels and Devils" I searched google images looking for more ambigrams and found nothing at all. These are excellent. I wish I had hundreds more to look at. I can't tell what that "James" one is supposed to say upside down, though. It's not an ambigram.

Your mom is not an ambigram. it doesnt have to be read upside down. it just has to be read more than one way. Go to johnlangdon.net or scottkim.com to see other categories of ambigrams.

I have that Paul McCartney CD and I never noticed the ambigram. Now I have to go home and look upon it.

I'm having a hard time turning my computer upside down. Maybe because it's not a mac.

Why does everyone think you have to have a mac to be able to turn your computer upside down? I am so utterly sick of this elitism. I have a PC and I can turn it upside down just as well as any elitist snob applephobe. In fact, I would say that I can turn it upside down faster and with less effort than a mac-lover ever could.
