Peperklips is the creation of Maestraccio Bart Thomasse. He developed it as an alternative, semi-phonetic alphabet for Dutch, because he believes that the Latin alphabet is not the best way to write the Dutch language. The shapes of the letters are based on paperclips, as the name of the alphabet suggests.
