Editorial Reviews

Steven Heller
Some of the type examples here are as well executed as any skilled hand lettering. But the section "Ambigrams," made up of words or phrases that read the same upside down and right side up, is especially breath­taking. These tattoos represent type­-play at its most challengingly inventive, and are true masterpieces of the lettering art.
