Sophisticated, simple, and classically styled, Libretto is designed to showcase your writing prowess! A unique feature of this theme is that it does NOT rely on any Javascript. It's built using HTML, CSS and a few fonts.

This is my first effort at making a theme and I hope you will enjoy using it!

The source code for this theme is hosted on Github. You can find it at the following link,

This theme is based off a Wordpress theme of the same name. You can find the original inspiration here,

Speaking of original inspirations, I needed some dummy posts to work with during theme development.

Just the names of the books as titles and their publication dates as, well, publication dates for blog posts!
