The most beautiful amicus brief you’ve ever seen
 / 

Like a lot of people, I enjoyed Typographica’s sprawling review of the best fonts from 2011, with contributions from folks like Caren Litherland and Jason Santa Maria.

My favorite find was not a typeface but a person: Matthew Butterick, a lawyer/typographer (!) who both wrote a terrific review and had a couple of typefaces reviewed. One of those, Equity, is designed specifically for the needs of lawyers: contracts, court filings, crappy office laser printers, etc. It came out of Butterick’s Typography for Lawyers project, which would be pretty cool on its own, even if he wasn’t also designing typefaces.

I mean seriously: lawyer/typographer? How cool is that? Almost as cool as library police.
