Same lettering says two different words
0

My friend made this.

It says "Bubbles lie" in calligraphy and "Calligraphy lies" in bubbles.

1. What's this type of thing called called?
2. Where can I find other examples of this?
3. Are there any resources on technique in creating these?

It's not an ambigram; it can be read as two different words without changing the viewpoint.

From the linked page (Ambigram types):
Perceptual shift (also called an oscillation)
A design with no symmetry but can be read as two different words depending on how the curves of the letters are interpreted.

Oh, sorry, I should have read that closer.

It's fun that the name is so long.
