I open a book and find this:

To the memory of the striking Bolshevik
printers of St Petersburg who, in 1905,
demanded to be paid the same rate for
punctuation marks as for letters, and thereby
directly precipitated the first
Russian Revolution

What a great thing to find when opening a book, this book. And just a few years back it would have been fun to use this snippet in a quiz, asking what book it was taken from. But these days there are spoilsports like Google and amazon who ruin the fun.

So, instead, tell me the typeface the book is set in and the catalogue number our library printed on its back.

The typeface is Fred Smeijers’ Quadraat, my friend.
