Because we designers see letters more than just letters, I was wondering if reading and/or writing boustrophedon (literally, “ox-turning” in plowing) comes easier for us. An informal study says mirror writing is probably genetic and apparently only one person out of 6500 can do it. I had never thought it was a rare “gift” and even used to think if that writing style hadn’t gone out of fashion we would all be speed readers.“To watch the corn grow, or the blossoms set; to draw hard breath over the plough or spade; to read, to think, to love, to pray, are the things that make men happy.” – John Ruskin
I think creative brains are just wired better and extraordinarily too. What do you think? Is mirror writing/reading easy for you?
