In 2007 the St. Peter and Paul Church in the Dutch city of Maassluis was put into service. The futuristic building is designed by the architects Mari Baauw and René Olivier. The church is constructed out of steel, which is covered with a double layer of canvas. The glass artist Stef Hagemeier was commissioned to design the window of the apse. Fascinated by the prologue of the Gospel of John, he decided to put this text into the window.

Hagemeier is a former student of the famous Dutch type designer and calligrapher Chris Brand, and he selectedDTL Albertinafor the lettering. At that time he was working together with Frank E. Blokland on the lettering of the stained-glass windows of the St. Peter Church in the city of Leyden (see also this video). Blokland designed a special version of DTL Albertina with shorter ascenders and descenders, and smaller capitals for the window of the St. Peter and Paul Church.
