Inkhorn Theme

A handsome theme with flexible appearance options

New Inkorn

At last, Inkhorn 2.0 has been approved by your Tumblr overlords. 

Where? What have you done to it?

You should see your theme switch over soon, but in the meantime you can see a demo of the update here: 

Some updates include

  • Adjusted typography to make for more comfortable reading.
  • Photo posts can be enlarged in a Hi-res lightbox.
  • Infinite-scroll!
  • Tags
  • Custom fonts. It might not look bookish, but everyone deserves the right to set their blog in Helvetica.
  • A raft of small fixes.

Where are the Ask, Archive and Submit buttons?

In the Customize section, enable Show Tumblr Links.

What if I don’t like it?

That’s OK! The update includes an option to revert to the previous version. In the customise section, make sure Legacy Mode is checked. Keep in mind that any of the new features will not work when this is turned on.

As always, your feedback is welcome in the comments section. If you are are experiencing any issues please provide a link to your blog.

Known issues

The following issues are being investigated

  • Legacy mode - Follow / links missing
  • Legacy mode - Bold / Italic styles missing

A Tumblr Theme

Inkhorn is a clever little theme with bookish charm for your Tumblr blog.

To install Inkhorn in one click, head on over to the Tumblr theme garden.

Inkhorn is pretty flexible in appearance and can also display your posts in a single column if you’d prefer (example here).

“Simplicity is not the goal. It is the by-product of a good idea and modest expectations.”

The Look that says Book

The vast majority of books and magazines are typeset using hyphenation and justification (written as H&J from here on in). In print, it’s everywhere: All lines of text except the last lines of paragraphs are stretched out to the same length. Flush left and flush right. Hyphens are used to break words at the end of lines to help prevent gaps in word spacing.
