The calligraphic Meroe font from Peter Becker:
a quite special individual character

Initially intended for the logo of a product name, Meroe was finally expanded by Peter Becker to create a complete typeface. With its calligraphic character, it lends a very personal feel, especially through the open forms within the lines. This is due to the use of a dried-out calligraphy pen with which Peter Becker made rapid movements on coarse-grained paper. That’s why Meroe seems particularly dynamic and can also be used for smaller point sizes. Whether for invitations, greetings cards or letters – Meroe always adds a vibrant character.
