Banco is an inclined titling typeface. It was designed by Roger Excoffon for the Fonderie Olive foundry in 1951. Excoffon did not design a matching lower case alphabet for the capitals.

Due to its extensive use on Bob Marley and the Wailers' Natty Dread album sleeve, it has become broadly associated with Reggae music and the Caribbean.
