Gnomon - time to move on

I won a copy of this in the fiendishly difficult quiz set by Robbie Stamp at the Birthday Celebrations in London!

Thanks, Willem, they're amazing pictures.

Congratulations, Gnomon! I wasn't able to stay for the Quiz, but I saw the questions - fiendish indeed! Hopefully the 8 I helped with weren't quite so fiendish! smiley - laugh

I have a copy of the hardback special edition and one of the paperbacks - amazing pictures indeed. The enhanced images are so vivid you could almost touch the fur or feathers... smiley - magic

42 is still my default answer. smiley - smiley

At last Saturday's get-together, someone passed a copy of Willem's book around. It looked spectacular. I'm juggling rather a lot of things right now, but when things settle down for me, I'll see about ordering one. smiley - smiley

(I certainly would never win a copy of it if I had to take a quiz. I remember the quiz at our get-together in 2011. My team did not do very well. smiley - sadface)
