Add a dash of color to your site with Liquorice, a wonderful new theme now available on WordPress.com.
Gorgeous textures and smooth-as-silk typography make this a striking backdrop for your content. This theme’s design is light and airy without being too plain or minimalistic; it’s a great fit for any type of site.
Liquorice features custom subscribe icons for RSS, Twitter, and Facebook for your site header and built-in support for the bold and adventurous Lobster typeface. If you choose to enable Lobster via Appearance → Typekit Fonts you’ll add an extra touch of retro feel to your site. Lobster’s bold, calligraphic strokes make it perfect for calling out titles and headings.
Make this theme your own with the custom background feature, custom header image, and custom menu. Learn all about Liquorice on the Theme Showcase.

Awesome cute theme.
Mar 17th at 6:12 pm
Lovely! A little vintage and a little minimal!
Mar 17th at 6:17 pm
Oooooh beautiful! And I like the name!
Mar 17th at 6:24 pm
I changed over! I really wish that if you changed the background color that the sidebar background color would change also—it doesn’t. That’s so weird! Having a white background and a tan sidebar is bizarre, or any other color than the original background color would just stick out strangely.
Mar 17th at 6:37 pm
Wow, that’s nice! Kinda has a 1950s soda fountain feel to it. =) Thanks again, WordPress.

This looks like a perfect theme for summer.
Mar 17th at 6:58 pm
Mar 17th at 7:09 pm
Just beautiful… amazing theme.
Mar 17th at 7:21 pm
A very good theme indeed. I simply love it!
Mar 17th at 7:23 pm
Oooh, lovely! I’ve been switching over to a lot of these new themes, since they’ve overall been excellent. I have a fourth blog that frankly calls for something more retro (it has to do with old comic strips), and this theme might be just the ticket! Thanks!
Mar 17th at 7:24 pm
Cool, but not for me – too casual. Good work though – it’s all appreciated.
Mar 17th at 7:35 pm
So many nice new themes – hard to know which to choose!
Mar 17th at 7:49 pm
The absolute best theme for ages – well done!
Mar 17th at 8:19 pm
This is a fresh style in themes and I’m sure quite a few will love this one. I’m wondering if it’s a new trend to include so much space at the top of the blog as we now see with Licorice and Duster? I like people to be able to see my material at first glace instead of having to scroll done so far.
Mar 17th at 8:48 pm
It looks like a 50s advertising poster. I like it.
Mar 17th at 8:58 pm
I really like this! When I read “Licorice,” I wasn’t sure, but it’s my favorite theme I’ve seen come out in a while. Well done!
Mar 17th at 9:12 pm
So cute and retro!
Mar 17th at 9:28 pm
Looks like a very casual and fun theme — can’t wait to play with it to see how it all works together (and how it works — or doesn’t — with my blog’s content).
Thanks as always for the options!
Mar 17th at 9:56 pm
Like Sandra said, to much unused space. Looks nice though.
Mar 17th at 10:41 pm
I really like this one, especially for the choice (and size!) of fonts. After all my cribbing about so many themes with tiny fonts, this one kinda shuts me up. Good work!
Mar 17th at 10:43 pm
I really like it, this theme is one of my favorites – I like the Facebook, Twitter and RSS feed at the top, I’m just not crazy about the design in the upper right hand corner. But for a free WP.com theme, this is great, wish more were like this!
Mar 17th at 10:55 pm
I love it! Is it a free theme?
Mar 17th at 11:35 pm
That’s really pretty in a cool kinda way – would be great for a blog on travel!
Mar 17th at 11:48 pm
I think Licorice is one of the coolest themes.
Mar 17th at 11:53 pm
Good job… each one gets better.
Mar 18th at 1:16 am
Nice… keep them coming.
Mar 18th at 1:45 am
I love this theme!
Mar 18th at 1:55 am
I’m gonna give this a look and see if I like it, I was expecting it to be black though.
Mar 18th at 2:26 am
I am considering to use this theme. Thank you.
Mar 18th at 2:35 am
Wow! This one is really neat! I also LOVE Big Sur!
Mar 18th at 2:42 am
The retro font and social site icons are a nice touch! Thanks.
Mar 18th at 2:47 am
Arrrgghh! You guys make it so hard to be faithful to just one theme! I keep falling in love with new themes nowadays… and this one might make me cheat on Duster.
Mar 18th at 3:52 am
Great looking theme! Testing it on my ‘secret’ test site.
Mar 18th at 4:49 am
You guys keep putting out great stuff without us having to spend one dollar. Fantastic, and for those who want to spend, they can, on the premium themes. I love the free ones. My blogs look fantastic, thank you.
Mar 18th at 5:53 am
Another wonderful theme from the theme team! Love the header fonts! It’s just missing being slightly wider in the blogging area and as someone else pointed out, the sidebar colour really ought to be changable with the background colour. Keep up the good work team!
Mar 18th at 7:38 am
Wow, I like it very much. Simple but beautiful.
Mar 18th at 7:41 am
Nice theme, especially liking the font choice… but it looks very similar to a certain Tumblr theme… hmm.
Mar 18th at 7:48 am
Sort of unrelated to the theme release, but Big Sur is beautiful! ^ ^
Mar 18th at 8:00 am
Another great theme!
Mar 18th at 8:57 am
It’s a really good one.
Mar 18th at 9:36 am
I’d like it better if there were footers: widget-ready footers.
Mar 18th at 9:59 am
I like it, but I like my current theme more
Mar 18th at 10:08 am
Cute! It looks like it could be the front of some 1950s sodashop… if you know what I mean! Really cool.
Mar 18th at 11:10 am
Not sure I can bring myself to change (I’m pretty in love with my theme) but it’s a GREAT contender!
Mar 18th at 12:19 pm
Wow! Just beautiful.
Mar 18th at 12:38 pm
Nice new theme. It looks more feminine than masculine though.
Mar 18th at 12:56 pm
Nice one… simple and casual.
Mar 18th at 12:57 pm
Mar 18th at 1:19 pm
That is cool indeed.
Mar 18th at 3:27 pm
Mar 18th at 3:36 pm
Lovely but it is too simple for me.
Mar 18th at 3:50 pm
EXACTLY what I’ve been looking for! Just changed to it! I sure hope I’m the only one… lol.
Mar 18th at 6:02 pm
I love this theme.
Mar 18th at 8:20 pm
I am going to try it and see if I like it. Thanks for the info… ciao.
Mar 18th at 8:57 pm
Cool, but probably won’t fit my blog… everyone else have at it!
Mar 18th at 9:08 pm
Beautifully designed. I like it.
Mar 18th at 9:10 pm
Ooooh, I’m loving the look of these new theme! The fonts are my favorite!
Mar 18th at 9:42 pm
Stunner, and so is the Lobster font! Fab design.
Mar 18th at 10:00 pm
It’s a hipster trap! Look out!
But seriously, it’s a cool looking design. Great for those Hipstamatic pics clogging up your phone. Get ‘em out there.
Mar 18th at 10:50 pm
Nice theme, I lived in the Carmel Highlands, north of Big Sur.
Mar 18th at 10:58 pm
Hmmm… I tried this theme, but the header font doesn’t look like the one as advertised. It ended up looking too big and obscured my custom header. I went back to my old theme. Pity, because I did like the color scheme.
Mar 19th at 12:56 am
Lovely! And free!
Mar 19th at 5:49 am
Cool! Very neat-looking!
Mar 19th at 10:32 am
Love this! Looking forward to switching one of my blogs over to it soon!
Mar 19th at 1:13 pm
That really looks pretty cool… nice & clean looking!
Mar 19th at 1:53 pm
I love this one! Nice! However, I think I should find time to personalize my page first. Ha!
Mar 19th at 2:57 pm
Awesome, I think I won’t be the only one having this.
Mar 19th at 4:18 pm
What an awesome new theme!
Mar 19th at 4:45 pm
Whoa! This is hot!
Mar 19th at 4:57 pm
Ooooh, I love it!! Trying it out soon and will probably switch!
Mar 19th at 5:27 pm
Oh wow. I really like this theme. I might keep this as an option for when I get bored of the default.
Mar 19th at 7:39 pm
Cute and kind of nostalgic.
Mar 19th at 10:25 pm
This is an amazing theme! I’ve been using it since the day it came out and I have to admit I don’t plan on changing anytime soon!
Mar 20th at 8:38 am
Such a unique and interesting theme, the addition of the three icons adds interest!
Mar 20th at 1:13 pm
Nice one, I love the earthy feel to it. Good job, guys!
Mar 20th at 4:26 pm
It is very beautiful.
Mar 20th at 7:03 pm
It’s pretty. I love it.
Mar 20th at 7:18 pm
Love it! Nuff’ said.
Mar 21st at 1:19 am
Looks simple but interesting.
Mar 21st at 3:55 am
I think it is very nice, and attractive!
Mar 21st at 7:30 am
This theme is pretty girly, I love the header font.
Mar 21st at 10:18 am
Oooooh! I think this will suit my blog- I love Notepad, or whatever I have at the moment, but I’m getting a bit bored with it – this looks exactly right! Thanks!
Mar 21st at 12:19 pm
Friendly – both the colors and the fonts. Good stuff!
Mar 21st at 4:27 pm
Lobster is fast becoming the “Comic Sans MS” or “Papyrus”. Way overused now.
Mar 21st at 7:12 pm
Love it! Seeing this new theme actually prompted me to create a new blog just for my iPhone photos. Thanks!
Mar 21st at 7:25 pm
Interesting theme will give it a try.
Mar 21st at 8:10 pm
Very good theme! Already using it
Mar 21st at 11:10 pm
This is A to the MAZING! Too bad I promised my readers I would be sticking with Rounded by Release for a while :/ What is with me and my silly promises?!
Mar 22nd at 9:02 am
Simple and yet so cool. Thanks and regards to all WordPress users.
Mar 22nd at 2:20 pm
OMG, this is just so… sweet!
Mar 22nd at 5:10 pm
That looks delicious
Mar 22nd at 7:58 pm
Very nice. Looks very 50s diner.
