Literary: A WordPress Blog Theme with a twist
So what’s the twist?
Not only is Literary a beautifully crafted blog theme, it also comes with a post type for showcasing your books and a post type for your portfolio.
So whether you are a blogger, a writer, an author, an illustrator, designer or in fact anyone – Literary is for you.
Built for the future
Not only is Literary compatible with WordPress 3.5, we have actually built it on the beta version of WordPress 3.6
We have built this theme “mobile first” for speed and flexibility, Literary looks great from mobile all the way up to large desktops.

Full of features…
Add all of your books and link them to Amazon, iTunes – wherever you sell them in fact.
Got other projects you want to talk about, no problem we’ve got a Portfolio post type for that too
We’ve got a simple announcement post type, based on the standard WordPress post. You can schedule announcements to appear, the most recent one is always shown at the top (if you enable via theme options). Great for an upcoming book launch campaign!
All post formats supported
Aside, audio, video, gallery, image, status, chat, link, quote, standard – we support them all in this theme.
Unlimited Color Options
You can control colours for the entire theme using our easy to use options panel.
More fonts than you can shake a stick at
Google fonts, Typekit fonts, Adobe Edge fonts, standard fonts – these are all built in and easy to setup, just follow the inline help.
You can even change the road colour on your Google Map
