Why should you care about typography? That’s like asking why you should practice for an oral argument or wear a tie to court. If you aren’t already using Matthew Butterick’s typography guide for lawyers, you’ll snap up a copy after you listen to this podcast.
On this podcast, Sam and Matthew talk about typography and address some of the big typographical controversies, like how many spaces you should use between sentences (one), whether you should put spaces around an em dash (if you want to), and why nothing says “I don’t care about my work product” like setting it in Times New Roman.
