Palindromes

Matt Squire's picture

Hi there,

Can someone help me, I saw an article ages ago on Typophile about Palindromes but cannot now find it, any ideas?

I am also looking for any info on illustrative text that is not a palindrome but does read backwards and forwards, if that makes sense

Cheers

Matt

I think I know what you are talking about, and after skimming the web I have found a name for it. You must be referring to glass-door ambigrams!

Some sort of ambigram, at least. I can't find him now but there is a calligrapher who does these in fine style. I remember a nice one he made for the band Aerosmith. . .

Hi Matt,
mmmh, I’m not sure what exactly you’re loooking for, but there are 10 results when searching typophile.com for ‘palindrome’
