photoScape

Second xScape based WordPress theme is photoScape. It has clean and simple block design and is based on only 4 colors. It has 12 default styles built in, each one using only 4 colors and some of them with background images, some without. First idea for usage of the theme is for photography based website and that’s why default thumbnails displayed are larger than it’s usual, making them dominant on the page.

As usual, theme has a BluePrint CSS behind it’s layout and is fully valid with both CSS 2.1 and XHTML 1.0. During the development of this theme, new module for xScape has been made for adding Google Maps into posts, and it’s also now standard element of the framework. To see what else is built in, check out links on the left for theme specific features, and also full framework features.

Iridium

RocketTheme’s Iridium is a WordPress 3.0 theme that has six style variations and a ton of widgets out of the box. It’s very graphic and great for sites that need more than a subtle look and feel.

Simple Gray

Simple Gray is a minimalist WordPress theme we did a couple years ago. Having not touched it once in over a year, with the launch of Museum Themes, we figured it was time to revisit it. We’ll be revamping all our old free themes and officially releasing some of the ones we never got around to. Added features to Simple Gray are Twitter @anywhere hovercards, WordPress 3.0 menus, installation notes, Google’s Droid Sans web font, and some nice css3 shadows for browsers that can see them.

Paper

Using an array of semi-neutral colors, this theme exhibits rich manila and art paper textures with details you could reach out and touch. It has a rich, distinguished approach displaying ripe berry accent colors and a smooth finish.

This theme is an ideal match for a wide range of website needs. It will go well with business or personal sites. It also lends itself to showing off treasured photographs, with its subtle but inviting presence. Paper is thick with widgets for all purposes and comes with two stylesheets dressed to kill, paying rapt attention to detail and aesthetics.

Arras-Theme

A stalwart of a magazine theme. Versatile and good looking.

Ex Libris

Ex Libris was designed for writers and typophiles. Lacking fancy graphical bells and whistles, we focused our attention, instead, on making your content readable with full typographic control. Ex Libris features a unique approach to choosing the typography for your site. Rather than relying on the tired basic web fonts, we’ve embedded the gorgeous free fonts from font foundry exljbris, giving you freedom to style your site with access to full font families and unique typefaces, while maintaining a consistent visual style. We’ve also built the theme with a unique, optional home page layout (Magazine Style, pictured above), and kept an uncluttered approach to page layouts.

If you’re a writer, if you love minimalism, clean design and unique typography, Ex Libris was made for you. Literally.

AP Museum zine is a unique magazine-style WordPress theme suite with 3 distinct skins, custom font calls, social networking integration, full advertising integration, a total of 9 interchangeable background wallpapers, and widgetized sidebar and footer boxes. It’s Dynamic Content Gallery-ready, meaning that if you install and set up Studiograsshopper’s DCG plugin, the code is already built-in to integrate it into the site with notes in the backend for optimal DCG width. zine now has font controls, allowing you to choose what fonts you want to use for the text of the site, or, optionally, customize or turn off the custom fonts embedded in the 3 skins. AP Museum zine is named for the underground fanzine movement of the 90s and early 2000s, and takes its grunge style from the handmade, xeroxed ‘zines that defined the ‘zine scene.
