This is another calligraphy hand "Illuminati". This hand comes from the book "Angels & Demons" by Dan Brown. What makes it different is that the word are written in such a way that each character is formed so that it reads the same either right side up or upside down. Casing the effect that there is no right side or wrong side to look at the calligraphy word or phrase.

Angels & Demons

So when you turn this picture over it reads the same and the picture below is the top picture turned upside down.

Great work!
I believe they are called Ambigrams. I have designed a logo using my initials so that it does the exact same thing. It will be used on personal cards.

I love them.

Chris if you get the book "Angels & Demons" written by Dan Brown you will find more of this hand.

I have seen this hand before, but still do not understand how it is done. Good job.

The way I did it was using a C-0 nib and only did demons on my template put the template the vellium and place the 'D" dead center and then went over it with a 00 blush. When it was dry then turned the template over and put the "&" which is the "D" upside down dead center next to the "D".

And there you have it Angels & Demons.:D :D

That's so interesting... you know, even though you posted it both ways, I was grateful that I now have a laptop, cause YES, I flipped it over cause I wasn't sure if the second pic was just a repost of the first... oh, me of little faith!
