Description: The inversions gallery of Puzzlemaster Scott Kim, whom Isaac Asimov called "The Escher of the Alphabet." An inversion is a word or name written so that it reads in more than one way. Some inversions read upside down, some flip in a mirror. Some read as two different words, some read as the same word both ways.
