Wildy's Book of the Month No 2: January 2016

Originally released to great acclaim in 2010, Typography for Lawyers was the first guide to the essentials of typography aimed specifically at lawyers.

Author Matthew Butterick, an attorney and Harvard-trained typographer, dispelled the myth that legal documents are incompatible with excellent typography. Butterick explained how to get professional results with the tools you already have quickly and easily

Revised and updated, Typography for Lawyers 2nd ed builds on the topics and tutorials included in the first edition with 20 pages of new material. The second edition includes:-

  • New topics such as email, footnotes, alternate figures, and OpenType features.
  • Advice for presentations, contracts, grids of numbers, and court opinions.
  • Technical tips covering the newest versions of Word and WordPerfect for Windows and OS X.
  • New font recommendations, including two that are free.
  • New essays on the font copyrights, screen-reading considerations, and typographic disputes that have reached the courts.
  • A refreshed layout, featuring type features designed by the author.
