I subjected you to some of my ambigram art before, mostly names of some science greats, in the Explain your name topic.
I am pleased to announce that I have created a Plait ambigram.
For background, an ambigram is a word or phrase expressed so that it can be read in more than one way. I like to do rotationally symmetric ambigrams that read the same upside down as they do right side up.
Someone asked if I had read Scott Kim's book, Inversions (available here). Indeed. It's the bible of ambigramming. I highly recommend it, not just for its specific topic of graphical manipulations but also for its insights into creativity and design.
To kick things off, here is a rotationally symmetric ambigram of Phil:
Here are some more given-names ambigrams from my collection [of course, copyrighted; all rights reserved; they are hard work!]:
So, where's Plait? Not yet. It's not ready for publication. I'm still tweaking it -- one-pixel adjustmets, here, there, to improve readablity. I'll unveil it in a couple of days. In the mean time, puzzle lovers might want to try their own versions. See if you come up with a similar solution, or even a better one.
