More Word Stuff

The cover of the album American Beauty (1970),...

I have a palindrome as my screen-saver, one that any self respecting Dead Head might use. It is one of the simple screen-savers that Microsoft package with windows and is simply a word that I’ve chosen tumbling about the screen. My palindrome is the word Aoxomoxoa, pronounced “OX-OH-MOX-OH-AH”, as far as I’m aware it has no meaning and is a piece of art using letters. Besides being a straightforward palindrome it can also read the same when viewed from the rear, therefore it makes a good looking (to these eyes) screen-saver when spelt like “AoXoMoXoA” then refining some of the settings within the screen-saver so that it looks as if it reflects colours, shades and objects.

After looking up palindromes on wikipedia, I spotted a link at the bottom of the page “Ambigram”. I’ve never heard of this before so I click on it and hey, more world or letter art. Click the link, it’s all rather cool and unknown to me there is another mention of Grateful Dead album cover artwork, this time the “American Beauty” album. I knew it could read differently when viewed from certain angles but I’m learning stuff today, real stuff!
