What is the Poplar® font?
Poplar is an Adobe Originals typeface designed by Barbara Lind in 1990 for the Adobe Wood Type series.
Poplar, a Gothic condensed, was designed from photographs taken by Rob Roy Kelly of the one surviving copy of an 1830 William Leavenworth type specimen book. Leavenworth possessed unusual artistic abilities, and his treatment of the letterform counters as narrow slits made it the only wood type of its kind displayed during the nineteenth century.
Poplar is an excellent display face, its simplicity making it useful for a broad range of work.

You're probably thinking - Is Poplar® available to Download for free?
The short answer is no. Poplar® is definitely not available as a free download font. This is a premium font which mean that you will have to pay to download and use it in your project.

It is always best to pay for a premium font rather than trying to find an illegal download. The benefits of paying for Poplar® is that you get the license to use it leagally.
