Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0151984549, Hardcover)Wordplay is a book of ambigrams words that can be read from more then one point of view. But these are not just any words. They are carefully chosen to communicate principles of western physics and eastern philosophy, with some language history and good old puns, just for fun. It adds up to an entertaining experience in the visual treatment of words visual poetry almost and a thorough, if indirect, education in the ancient Chinese philosophy Taoism.
