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.
