«The unbearable beauty of the text».
Handscroll is a tumblr theme with horizontal scrolling, multi-column and responsive layout.
Created with a focus on typography, it is dedicated to all those who love to write and read long text posts.
This theme offers two original functions: the possibility to choose between four types of pre-installed fonts to insert illustrations into posts or make effective comic strips; and the ability to turn your blog (especially in the tablet and ebook reader) into a real PDF viewer app thanks to navigation “page by page”. This system allows to move of a section equal to the supported width browser, by clicking the sides of the screen.
Handscroll is equipped with many html structures for a powerful and effective text formatting, such as pull quotes or footnotes, it has many options for a deep customization.
Among the services supported, I report Print Friendly (to convert the post into a PDF file) and dotEPUB (to convert the post in ePub or mobi format).
You can get an idea how these functions work by taking a look at the demo. On this website, as well as illustrating the various features, I wrote a guide to make them easy to use: just copy and paste the code that is found in those articles.
