Plantin was designed by Frank Pierpont and published by Monotype. Plantin includes 18 styles and household plan options. p > Plantin is a Renaissance Roman as seen through a late-- industrial-revolution paradigm. Its kinds aim to celebrate fine 16th century book typography with the requirements of mechanized typesetting and mass production in mind.

How did this anomalous style come about? In 1912 Frank Hinman Pierpont of English Monotype visited the Plantin-Moretus Museum in Antwerp, returning home with "understanding, numerous photos, and a stack of antique typeset specimens consisting of a few examples of Robert Granjon's." Together with Fritz Stelzer of the Monotype Illustration Office, Pierpont took among these overinked proofs taken from worn type to utilize as the basis of a brand-new text face for device composition. Body text set in Plantin produces a dark, abundant texture that's suited to editorial and book work, though it also performs its tasks on screen with ease. Its historical roots lend the message it sets a sense of gravity and credibility. The family covers four text weights complete with italics, with four condensed heading styles and a caps-only entitling cut.
