Not only did Ghost launch a few years ago, it launched big, really big. Over the last few years, no other CMS has received such universal acclaim and generated such excitement. Not since WordPress anyway.
What does make Ghost great? And why is it such a great alternative to other CMSs? That is easy. It is purely the simplicity it offers.
All of the free themes we have for you below embody everything that Ghost represents – a simple platform that puts all of the focus onto your great content. The themes are lightweight, minimal, have beautiful typography, and are a solid foundation for creating your own theme.
As well as styled themes, at the bottom of the collection, we have also included a selection of blank themes to help make things easier for you guys to get started creating your own Ghost themes.
