Christoffel Plantijn (1520–1589) was an influential French Renaissance book printer, publisher and humanist living and working in Antwerp.

Plantin fled from religious persecution in France and settled in Antwerp, where he opened a bookbindery in 1549, and later a printing office. During his 34-year career, Plantin published more than 1,600 books in Antwerp and at his branch offices in Paris and Leiden. His publications consisted chiefly of scholarly works, ancient Greek and Roman works with scholarly commentaries, and liturgical and theological books. They were distinguished by their excellent typography and contained many copperplate engravings.

Plantin’s masterpiece is the Antwerp polyglot Bible (Biblia polyglotta; vols. 1–8, 1569–73), printed in Hebrew, Chaldean, Greek, and Latin. Plantin’s logotype was a hand holding a pair of compasses over the motto “Through Labor and Constancy.”

Plantin left his printing offices to his sons-in-law; the Antwerp office was inherited by his main successor, J. Moretus. In 1877 a memorial museum devoted to Plantin and Moretus (Museum Plantin-Moretus) was established in the Plantin buildings in Antwerp.
