Plantain is a serif, stencil and display serif font family. This typeface has two styles and was published by CastleType.


Plantain Regular


Plantain Stencil


Plantain™ was commissioned by Smarter Image for their catalog several years ago. Very bold and tightly spaced with tall x-height; ideal for large headlines and adwork. Named after one of my favorite foods: fried plantain; yum! Original name: Plantin Adweight. Plantin was originally designed by F. H. Pierpont, who based the design on that of a famous 16th century printer, Christopher Plantin, for whom Pierpont’s font was named. Now available in a stencil style.
