reflection: clockwork-orange
Had always wanted to design this. We tried to be as true to the original design (below) as we could. The constant inspiration for this is Cascarrabias' The Godfather reflection and Homero's Shrek ambigram. One of the better books we've read.

Thank you Homero and Txescu.

The book is pure legendary-artistry in itself, what with the 7x3 plot-years format, the 'new language' created, the Pavlovian imagery at the end.. Even 'Alex' - the main protagonist (antogonist?) comes from A-lex or 'lawlessness'.

On the film, it's Kubrik's own interpretation (much to the dismay of Burgees); the visual comes of too industrial, starkly choreographed and apocalyptic in the metal-tasting 'Mad Max' kind of way. We like it, bashfully.

Your ambigrams are fantastic, I've already come across them on the web before you comment on my blog (, and I'm really glad you liked mine =). After that, I think I'll begin to make my blog bilingual =P...

By the way, could you give some tips on how to make my ambigrams more "clean" and "fontlike"? Like yours and all those "profesional ambigrams" I see all the time...
