“CFF Maestricht Type Specimen and Microsite” ‘Maestricht’ is a handwritten typeface Meisterstück 149 fountain pen Chateau Neercanne Maastrichts typeface by Jean-Paul Toonen hamburgefontivs 1234567890@&

‘Maestricht’ is a handwritten typeface originally written with a fountain pen. Local film producer Jean-Paul Toonen introduced the font in 1992. At that moment Maastricht was writing history, and the European treaty and its subscribers inspired Jean-Paul to design this handwritten font. René Verkaart is the Maastricht-based type designer who transferred the handwritten characters into a digital upgraded - smart - living font. The lettering is originally written with the most standard European fountain pen, The Meisterstück 149 by Montblanc in Vienna. That’s a deep black precious resin pen with gold-coated details, surmounted by the white star emblem and finished with a handcrafted gold nib. The Meisterstück evolved into Montblanc’s design icon. So, now there is also a font, handwritten in the Montblanc Midnight Blue Ink. And also digitally available in any other color.
