MSCD3 Is at the Printer (And Here’s What the Cover Looks Like)

Finally, the third edition of A Manual of Style for Contract Drafting is at the printer.

It took long enough: Four years of preparing blog posts that were first-draft versions of much that’s new in the book. Two months solid of writing and collating.

While we were at it, we redesigned the cover. Here it is:
