About Matthew Butterick

I’m a writer, ty­pog­ra­pher, pro­gram­mer, and lawyer.

I de­signed the fonts used in this book—see MB fonts.

In ad­di­tion to Prac­ti­cal Ty­pog­ra­phy, I also wrote the books Ty­pog­ra­phy for Lawyers and Beau­ti­ful Racket.

To make these books pos­si­ble, I cre­ated Pollen, an open-source pub­lish­ing sys­tem. Pollen was built with the world’s most in­ter­est­ing pro­gram­ming lan­guage, Racket.

I have a vi­sual-stud­ies de­gree from Har­vard Uni­ver­sity, and a law de­gree from UCLA. I live in Los An­ge­les with my wife Jes­sica, who is an ap­pel­late law­yer, and Roxy, who is a boxer dog.
