Castine Opentype

There’s a cemetery in Castine, Maine—a lovely coastal town perhaps best known for Maine Maritime Academy and a surviving crop of stately old American elms—with headstones dating back into the 18th century, with the standard old headstone shape, often topped by winged skulls. Thanks to Deborah Pulliam, I got my hands on a couple rubbings; these show such a peculiarly fascinating style of stonecarving that I couldn’t help myself—and what you see here is the result. Castine has a full character set in both roman and italic styles.* (Check out the epitaphs.) US$49. | Order  Buy old fonts

*The OpenType release of Castine™ adds numerous ligatures, old-style and lining figures, and Central/Eastern European alphabets.
