It's not really an illustration I guess, but I've been doing lots of ambigrams lately, and thought it would be fitting to do one for this illustration friday topic. For those of you who haven't heard of the word before, an ambigram in typography is a word that can be read the same way from two different perspectives. This particular one spells "reverse" if you turn it upside down as well. To save you the trouble of standing on your head or turning your monitor upside down, I've turned it upside down for you!
I couldn't quite figure out what to do about the e in the middle, so I turned it sideways :) Not a true ambigram... but close enough?
