Keith Wood - Ambigrams

According to Wikipedia: "An ambigram, also sometimes known as an inversion, is a graphical figure that spells out a word not only in its form as presented, but also in another direction or orientation." A leading exponent of this technique is John Langdon.

I've always been fascinated by these figures and wanted to try my own hand at it. So, as Christmas presents, I designed ambigrams for each member of the family and my parents. These are the same when you rotate them by 180°.
