Plateau Five is a display typeface with an appearance mostly based on forms of the transitional period between Baroque and Neo-Classicism and has an underlying rigid structure. Its serifs are prominent and the generally expressive tone that comes with italics is muted.
Plateau Five is based on the principle of even distribution, rooted in the social ideas that emerged with modernity during the 1920s in the western world. Applied to the typeface at hand this means that most letter widths of the Latin characters are optically equal.
