ambigram: rotator
When this artform was first discovered and later introduced by the pioneers - among them Douglas Hofstadter and John Langdon - the coined term 'ambigram' was vastly accepted to describe it. Then came other terms such as Scott Kim's Inversions and Gianni A. Sarcone's Amphigrams. Not to be outdone (with a pinch of salt *wink,wink*), nagfa introduce another totally unnecessary, potentially-underused term: ROTATOR. *Also a palindrome!
Okay, there goes our 15 seconds of fame (refer to Andy Warhol).. now off the soapbox, back to the gutters and the alleyways..
