New Theme: Linen

Today’s latest theme is as clean and fresh as you’d expect a theme named Linen to be. It’s also an impressively adaptable theme with an array of options that make personalizing it simple and easy. If you’re publishing articles in a magazine, pages for a business site, or your own personal blog, you’ll find Linen’s elegant style perfect for you. And it’s yours for the lifetime of your blog for only $68.

The Linen Theme

Just like the other premium themes from The Theme Foundry Linen is packed with features. Linen beautifully highlights posts with featured images by sliding them across the home page. You can add thumbnails to each post and upload your own logo or custom background. You can even customize the typography with a selection of seven accent fonts and eight different body fonts!

Read more about Linen’s features on the Theme Showcase and preview it right now, live on your blog, from Appearance → Themes.

    I was expecting a free, clean, magazine theme. :) But this theme is worth the fee it requires. Thanks for the all work you do.

    I like the idea of being able to change fonts. That is the biggest thing I think is missing from many other themes.

    I am really happy with this one! I will say I have not liked some of the previous themes coming out. Yet, I do think it is a bit pricey, perhaps you could explain to me if there are some hidden features that make this the price it is?
