Castine was developed by Brian Willson and published by 3 Islands Press. Castine contains 2 styles and household plan alternatives. p > There's a cemetery in Castine, Maine, a beautiful coastal town possibly best understood for Maine Maritime Academy and a surviving crop of majestic old American elms, with headstones going back into the 18th century-- the basic old headstone shape, often topped by winged skulls.

Thanks to a local historical society volunteer, I got my hands on a couple rubbings; these show a specific design of stonecarving that showed fascinating to the point of typeface design.

Castine has a full character set in both roman and italic styles.
