At Plantain, we transform your life story into beautiful and individualised books.
We craft books for individuals, families and companies, working hard to get to what your story means to you, and what it could mean to everyone else.
We bring your story to life, in your voice, all the while placing it within relevant historical contexts. We then personalise all design, artfully combining your words with memorabilia, fonts, colours, and illustrations that best speak to you. The result is a bespoke heirloom, as unique as your story.
Our belief is that by beautifully celebrating personal histories, we become more self aware and learn how interconnected we all are, ultimately creating a more empathetic world.

What some of our clients have to say...
Plantain’s passion fuels their ability to listen deeply to the many facets of a story, and their sheer determination and unwavering integrity bring these stories to life in a way that they can be accessed by all. This is done with immense humility and they use creative insight to make these unique interpretations in many mediums. It has been an honour to have known and collaborated with them over the last three years, and our family applauds their work.
CHARLOTTE ELIAS - DIRECTOR, THE EMILE ELIAS GROUP OF COMPANIES
I engaged the folks at Plantain to document my husband’s side of the family as a Christmas gift to my children. With their expert advice, guidance, research methods and attention to detail, the simple concept became a thoroughly researched autobiography filled with interviews, memories, illustrations, and photos of eras past.
