A couple of years ago I ordered a book called Typography for Lawyers in order to improve the quality of office communications. And it really helped, until I misplaced it. (I’m sure I’ll find it which behind a bookcase one day.)
Bitstream Charter seems to do a decent job of keeping the layout of documents I made with Cambria http://t.co/9inAjzqas2

Today I saw this tweet which pointed me to Practical Typography, an abridged version of the book, now as an online publication. This is a wonderful development.
So now I would like you to do two things
- Read the section “Typography in ten minutes.”
- And give some money to the author. (He recommends $5–$10, so I’ll give $7.50.) It may be the best money you spend all day.
I’ll be referring to this book (and what I do with it) in coming weeks.
