Just imagine a place in which things turned upside down are still right-side up, where the laws of nature as we know them are suspended, ignored, or even expanded. That’s the fantastic universe of Eye Twisters, which features incredible ambigrams—calligraphic designs that have not just one, but two interpretations at once. Though these visual conundrums have existed for years, they were virtually unknown until recently, when John Langdon—who provided the foreword here—created some superb examples for Dan Brown’s bestselling novel Angels & Demons. In addition to a history of the form, and suggestions for ambigram spotting in the natural world, this magnificent compilation showcases a variety from several masters of the style, including M.C. Escher, Scott Kim, Gustave Verbeek, Rob Gonsalves, and many more.
