It's an ambigram of earth, air, fire, water. So you can read it right side up and upside down. Neat. But..not mine. Darn.

Ahh, the great John Langdon. We're all copies of him. No one even thought of the '180 degree rotating text that is legible either way' until he came up with it :P

Rick Griffin (who is one of Langdon's influences) would do symmetry stuff in the 60s. I remember "WOW MOM"

M. C. Escher came up with NOW NO SWIMS ON MON in 1968, perhaps earlier. (See journal entry at M-C-Escher-Style [link] -- this journal entry also has a link to Langdon's website)

Isn't this whatchycallit? Err, not-Da-Vinca-Code?

Angels and Demons? Yes.

I didn't realize what it was from when I drew it.

But coincidentally, I just finished that book about an hour ago.

Huh. Strange.

...Is the original artist of that ambigram. And all the ones found in Angels and Demons.

Ohh. So Dan Brown named his main character after him?
laparapa's avatar
Yup. Brown mentioned it in a Witness Statement for High Court. Langdon was the inspiration for the character, and the artist of the ambigrams used in the book.
laparapa's avatar
For the record, it's by John Langdon.

Robert's namesake.
