The original design of the thirteen letters on the sculptures found in hall of the former post office at the Neude in Utrecht in the Netherlands was made by Hendrik van den Eijnde. The statues were made in the 1920s and their copyright expired after 2009, 70 years after teh death of the artist.

This project, in terms of at least the font files and documentation, has an Open Font License (OFL). This license can be found in the file called LICENSE but also on the site of the authors of the license, SIL International.
