Libretto is a responsive one-column theme with classic styling and careful typographic details. It’s ideally suited to showcasing longform writing interspersed with beautiful images and inspiring quotes.


Featured Images & Custom Header

Personalize your site by uploading a Custom Header.

On posts and pages, your Featured Images, if set, will replace your header image. Use a large image and it will display full-screen, with the title of your post or page layered on top.

Site Logo

Libretto allows you to add your own Site Logo, which will be displayed at the top of the blog index page.


The footer area includes four optional Widget areas — use as many, or as few, as you need, and the layout will adapt.


Libretto includes styles for drop-cap paragraphs and pull quotes. Learn more about how to use them.


Libretto looks best with lots of big images, but it can also adapt to smaller images. For best results, use large images, or align smaller images to the left or right.

Social Menu

Libretto will display links to your favorite social media profiles in a secondary menu at the bottom of the page. To display them, set up a Social Links Menu.
