Eq­ui­ty is used for body text in this book. Eq­ui­ty was orig­i­nal­ly de­signed for le­gal writ­ers, but any pro­fes­sion­al writer can ben­e­fit from its many conveniences:

  1. Eq­ui­ty fits as much text on the page as Times New Ro­man, and stays leg­i­ble down to small point sizes.

  2. Eq­ui­ty has been de­signed to per­form well on both high-end out­put de­vices and of­fice print­ers. Each style in the fam­i­ly comes in two weight grades so you can pick the grade that looks just right on your print­er—a fea­ture found in very few fonts.

  3. Eq­ui­ty comes with a sep­a­rate set of caps fonts, which con­tain real small caps and al­ready in­clude my rec­om­mend­ed let­terspac­ing.

  4. Eq­ui­ty has a short, plain-Eng­lish li­cense that in­cludes per­mis­sion to use it in PDFs, web­sites, apps, and elec­tron­ic books.

Eq­ui­ty has no demo ver­sion, but I of­fer a 30-day re­turn op­tion: if the fonts aren’t your style, you can can­cel your li­cense and get a refund.

Eq­ui­ty is also avail­able with Con­course as a dis­count­ed bundle.

  • In this book, I use Eq­ui­ty’s text grades to op­ti­mize web dis­play—Win­dows ma­chines and high-res­o­lu­tion iPads get the heav­ier grade; Macs and low­er-res­o­lu­tion iPads get the lighter grade. (Web jocks can look at the page source to see how this is done.)
