Castine

CastineThere’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 the generosity of the late Deborah Pulliam, benefactor of the Castine Historical Society, I got my hands on a couple of rubbings; these show a particular style of stonecarving that proved captivating to the point of typeface design. Castine has roman and true italic styles. OpenType features include numerous ligatures, old-style and lining figures, and full Latin. (Check out the epitaphs.) US$49.
