|The TFL fonts — designed by Matthew Butterick|
When I started the Typography for Lawyers
Of course not, I thought. Lawyers hadn’t even scratched the surface of the many excellent professional fonts already available.
Like most type designers, I found it impossible to resist an invitation to explore a new realm of typographic geekery. But I’m also happy to share the results with you: the TFL Fonts, a set of four font families inspired by the needs of legal writers.
The second edition of Typography for Lawyers uses all four: Equity for body text, Concourse for captions and instructions, Triplicate for typewriter-style samples, and Advocate for headlines and the front cover. (Of course, you’re also reading them right now.)
Opposing counsel? So I’m told. Your mileage may vary, however.
