Ambigrams

An ambigram is a calligraphic design in which its written form can be interpreted in multiple ways—a “visual pun,” if you will. They are most commonly seen as words that will look the same when turned upside down. The word was coined by Douglas Hofstadter, a scholar of cognitive science, in 1984. An example of a natural ambigram, where the word is easy to read forward and backward, is NOON.
