    The Plantin Institute of Typography tea­ches Expert clas­ses on Typography and rela­ted design. As an inde­pen­dent orga­ni­sa­tion it offers a uni­que pro­gram com­bi­ning the­o­re­ti­cal insi­ghts and his­to­ri­cal bac­k­grounds with tech­ni­cal knowledge and prac­ti­cal skills.

    Some of the pages are only available in Dutch. The custom WordPress theme was designed by Johan Van Looveren (Van Looveren & Princen) and developed by Filip Daniëls (Whispers & Sons). The typeface is DTL Van den Keere, a revival based on the Parangon Romein cut by Hendrik van den Keere in 1575 and first used by Plantin in 1576, made in 1991–1995 by Frank E. Blokland who teaches digital typeface design at the Plantin Institute.

      Paragon Romein, not Parangon Romein?

      The Flemish and French spelling indeed is with an ‘n’.
