Say hello to Shelf, the newest member of our theme collection! When we first broke ground on Shelf nearly four months ago I knew this theme was going to be special, but I never imagined it would turn out to be such a work of interface art. I want to personally thank the incredibly awesome Jon Hicks, Yan Sarazin, and Brandon Dove for bringing Shelf to life, it wouldn’t have happened without your hard work.

Handcrafted with love
At the core of Shelf is pure HTML5 goodness. If you take a peek at the source code you will find native HTML5
<article> tags. By combining @media queries and a fluid layout, Shelf also strives to be a flexible and responsive design.
Built for mobile
Shelf is built to play well with modern smartphones and even has some special tweaks for the iPad, including single finger swiping and easily scrollable articles! Not only that, Shelf for WordPress fully supports the Express iPhone app from WooThemes out of the box. If you are using the Tumblr version of Shelf, you have the ability to post using several different devices.
Upcoming WordPress post formats
As you may have heard, WordPress is introducing post formats in version 3.1 (due out sometime in December). The new post formats will be a perfect fit for Shelf and we plan on releasing an update soon after WordPress 3.1 is released giving you the option to migrate to the new native post formats.
