Other articles where Plantin is discussed: typography: Mechanical composition: cut at this time included Plantin, based upon the types of the great Antwerp printer, Christophe Plantin, and Caslon; the latter was made at the instigation of George Bernard Shaw’s publishers, since Shaw, who had strong views on typography, would not allow any other face for his books. Moretus, who took over the press in after the death of his father Jan, was a former Latin school classmate of Rubens’s. United in their love of antiquity and the classics, the two collaborated for about 25 years on book illustrations and magnificent title pages that represent the content of the book through complex allegory.

Plantin, CHRISTOHE, book-binder and publisher of Antwerp, b. , at or near Tours (France); d. July 1, , at Antwerp. The son of a servant, he learned the art of book-binding and printing () with the prototypographer, Robert Mace II at Caen. At an early age he had already learned Latin and shown a pronounced taste for scientific books. In Plantin moved his home and business to the Kammerstraat, a street in Antwerp where most printers and other book trade workers were established. At this time he hired Jan Moretus (Moerentorf), a young man who was to become Plantin's son-in-law, business manager, and eventually successor in the Plantin printing business.

Plantin is a Renaissance Roman as seen through a late–industrial-revolution paradigm. Its forms aim to celebrate fine sixteenth century book typography with the requirements of mechanized typesetting and mass production in mind. The original residence and workshop of the Plantin and Moretus publishing dynasty offers you a unique historical experience, which is why it is a Unesco world heritage site. The building’s creaking oak planks and panels seem imbued in the history of books, the art of printing and the story of a family’s entrepreneurial flair.
