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.

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

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….)

Now, since you allowed that, I think that’s fair
to let Bj ask our next question.

I know what you meant, Bj. ;-)
And I’m going offline soon, so I’ll leave this
quiz in hands of our dear Quizmaster.
