English is full of peculiarities that hoodwink us into believing one thing while meaning something quite different. Bringing these illogical oddities to the fore, British graphic designer Teresa Monachino has crafted these clever visual representations that are created entirely through artfully manipulated typography. Brilliantly demonstrating how the swift shuffle of certain letters can create words that entirely contradict the first, "honestly" becomes "on the sly," "earliest" becomes "rise late" and, decoding a great mystery, "Elvis" = "lives."
