Assembled from the lettering of iconic albums, the quiz asks participants to name the albums which spell out the sentence ‘Can you name these albums from just the type?’.

Despite the familiarity of the albums, it’s a pretty difficult quiz, with this DW reporter only scoring a disappointing 12 out of 37.

So if you need some respite from cramming your face full of mince pie, test your knowledge at http://musictypographyquiz.com/ Fun for all the family!
