Bestselling author Dan Brown commissioned artist John Langdon to create a series of ambigrams for his novel Angels and Demons. Ambigrams are images that look the same when you flip them 180 degrees.

Langdon, a truly exceptional artist and also the namesake for Angels and Demons and Da Vinci Code‘s main character, created the following Illuminati ambigram:
