Book Lite

Book Lite

Book Lite is a beautifully designed theme inspired by old-fashioned typography. With a bold custom header, stylized type, featured header images, and elegantly simple design, it’s certain to inspire some of your best work.

Featured Header Images

If a featured image is assigned to a page or post, the image will appear as a background to the header (in place of the custom header, if one is set).


You can configure up to three footer widget areas by going to Customize Widgets.

Custom Menu

This theme includes one drop-down navigation menu in the header. By default it will display your Pages, but you can also assign a custom menu to the Primary Menu area under Customize Menus.

Note: Book Lite works best with a smaller menu when viewing on a mobile device. The custom menu’s appearance also changes slightly when a custom header is not set — this is normal.

Custom Header and Background

Book Lite allows you to set a large custom header under Customize Header Image. Custom Header works best with an image at least 1440px wide and 500px tall. You can also customize the theme with a background color or image by going to Customize Colors & Backgrounds.
