Or maybe I'll just declare Eduardo the winner. He's the one who did all the work. Hats off to John for the tricky one. Matha
Hey. It's gone all quiet in here. Is that tumbleweed I can see blowing across the forum? C.
I certainly think Eduardo deserves to win this one.
Ok then, that settles it. Eduardo's the winner. M

So is eduardo going to continue with the quiz??
I don't know, Hector. Am I allowed to do it? ;-)
Go for it.
Ok then. There's an Emigre typeface which *name* makes reference to a famous book written by Aldous Huxley. What's the name of that typeface? And what's the name of the book?
Citizen, Brave New World (?)
That's the right book, but the typeface is wrong. I don't think the word "citizen" is such a reference for this book either. If you know which is the longest river in Africa, you'll probably figure out the answer to this quiz. ;-)
well, I'm not sure what the Huxley reference is, but I believe Tarzan operated near the Nile... Tarzana?
Not Tarzana, sorry. Think about "the greatest moralizing and socializing force of all time." Hope this will help you! =D
If you have the book around, check chapter 2 please. ;-)
Eduardo - Arbitrary Brave New World
I hate to answer this now because I don't have a question of my own and I'm on my way out of the office. if anyone wants to take my trivia spot, please help yourself. (assuming I've got the answer....) Hypnopaedia, BNW
You got it now, plainclothes! Congrats! ;-) Now, since you allowed that, I think that's fair to let Bj ask our next question.
Eduardo - Sorry, I don't have anything really good. I was saying, Yep, as in Yeah, that's right, PC got it. but thanks... bj
I know what you meant, Bj. ;-) And I'm going offline soon, so I'll leave this quiz in hands of our dear Quizmaster. Have a nice weekend, folks!
I'll take that back. I do have a question. If that's okay with the Quizmaster. I'll wait the standard hour. bj charity case
My other Q. was really obscure, so this one is more mainstream/easy. apologies. Name the typographer who designed this logo... What is the product... bj
leggs pantyhose -- oh sheesh -- paul rand
