Butterick’s Practical Typography

Mathew Butterick has been quietly fixing typography in the practice of law for years with his Typography for Lawyers website and accompanying book which, by the way, every lawyer should read once, pause, then read again.

Most recently Mathew has a new project, Practical Typography, which everyone should read. It doesn’t take long and includes great, useful typography tips such as:

“Avoid goofy fonts, mono­spaced fonts, and sys­tem fonts, especially times new roman and Arial.”

If you’ve wanted to clean up your own typography act but don’t want to spend a lot of time on the endeavor, check out Practical Typography. It will set you right.
