Castine was designed by Brian Willson and published by Three Islands Press. Castine contains 2 styles and family package options.  

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 -- the standard 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 particular style of stonecarving that proved captivating to the point of typeface design.

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