Nikita has produced A highly insightful look at the world of ambigrams. As an ambigram designer himself, he explains The various different styles and a brief look at the creation of an ambigrams. The book focuses on special indepth case studies of designers from their starting point to the final finished pieces, each one reviewed by renowned typographers, as well as a varied look at ambigrams from designers around the world. If your looking for inspiration on ambigrams, typography, lettering or just want to know what ambigrams are, then this will be a great addition to any library as there are few books on the subject (John Langdon's WORDPLAY being another).

Very interesting and highly recommended.

HASH(0x92b33f48) out of 5 stars Great fun! 29 Mar. 2013
By N. Franklin - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
If you're already an ambigram fan you'll definitely enjoy the many examples in this book, and if you've never heard of ambigrams you'll get a great introduction here... either way you're in for a treat! This book includes a couple of the greatest ambigram artists on the planet and others who are not well known but produced some great stuff. You get to see the process they went through to create their ambigrams and read the comments by the pros.

There are even tips for readers who might get inspired to make their own ambigrams. Granted you might never reach the level of genius displayed by the professionals in this book, but they weren't born knowing how to create ambigrams, so why not give it a try? I haven't finished reading every word of text in the book yet, but this is more the kind of book where you want to browse through it and go "Ooh! Look at this one! Look at that one!" and then go back and read more details about how they were accomplished.

It's all printed on high quality paper in full color.

Highly recommended! Have fun!

HASH(0x9227c1b0) out of 5 stars Awesome book!! 3 April 2013
By Doc Vector - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
It is an awesome (and apparently first of it's kind) collection of some of the finest ambigrams created by some of the most talented designers in the world. To a layman or a professional designer, it provides a detailed introduction into the world of the ambigram and the people who create it. It informs, amazes and entertains! The book is in full colour, the paper is of very good quality and the entire book oozes style!
