Sort of a revival of the geometric letters seen on a 1916 Dutch litho to paper poster for Wm H. Müller & Co.'s Batavier-lijn passenger service Rotterdam-London. The Batavier Line was the oldest steam shipping line in the Netherlands. The line existed from 1830-1960.

The litho design was originally done by Bart van der Leck (1876 - 1958).

The fontstruction is a Faux Bezier approach, so the design grid was huge. Making it a lot of work and hard to ballance with the editors kerning feature.

I made a couple of small changes as compared to the original, most significant is the upscaled Ampersand.

I completed the alphabet plus numerals and some punctuations.

There are still a small number of spacing issues that needs to be solved.

More characters will follow soon.
