Libre 2by Automattic
Overview

Libre 2

(Libre 2 is a refreshed version of the Libre theme, with more features and added flexibility.)

Libre 2 brings a stylish, classic look to your personal blog or site for longform writing. The main navigation bar stays fixed to the top of the screen while your visitors read, keeping your most important content at hand, while three footer widget areas give your secondary content a comfortable home. Customize Libre 2 with a logo or a header image to make it your own.

Site Logo

Libre 2 includes support for a Site Logo, which appears in the header above the site title at a maximum of 300 x 300 pixels, and 50 x 50 pixels when the navigation is fixed at the top of the page.
