Details: 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 builds on the topics and tutorials included in the first edition with 20 pages of new material, covering topics such as email, footnotes, alternate figures, and OpenType features, providing advice for presentations, contracts, grids of numbers, and court opinions, and including essays on the font copyrights, screen-reading considerations, and typographic disputes that have reached the courts.
