Ever since I read “The Difference Machine“, I had a special place in my heart reserved for steampunk. I just love the aesthetics and the DIY attitude, even though I lack the time to do some tinkering for myself…
Some time ago I already created two ambigrams of the the word “steampunk” (you can see them at the end of the post) but this time I wanted to do something different. So, here’s an ambigram of the word “Æther“, a substance/medium of great importance in many, many steampunk inventions 😉

It was very important for me to capture the ligature at the beginning of the word and to make a decorative design, so, I must confess that I sacrificed readability for style…forgive me.
Here are the “steampunk” ambigrams I mentioned before:

This is the version I favor, because I didn’t have to rely on graphical elements to create a solution. And the “P” has a nice pipe-ish look to it…

This version is easier to read, but I think I’m fed up with cogs…
