Inversions : a catalog of calligraphic cartwheels by Scott Kim( Book )

22 editions published between 1981 and 2001 in English and Undetermined and held by 626 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Inversions is a book designed to be seen as well as read - and to be seen from a variety of perspectives. In it, Scott Kim offers a rich portfolio of words, phrases, and complete alphabets in startling arrangements that involve us in mental juggling of the highest order. Kim turns calligraphy on its head with a visual exploration of symmetry, reflecting letters as in mirrors, pivoting them around central points, subverting our expectations, and interchanging roles. The results are elegant, frequently startling, and always uncommonly intriguing. His equally witty commentary discusses the technique of inversion in depth - what it is, how to achieve it, and how to extend its potential to enhance appreciation of art, music, and wordplay. For the fine artist, the graphic designer, the geometer, and the interested novice alike, Inversions gives dramatic testament to seeing the essence of a subject more clearly by examining all its sides. -- from back cover
