I use Beccary's Almost Spring theme. IMO, she has created some of the most striking, beautiful WP themes (among them Thirteen as well). Unfortunately, it appears she has abandoned them.
What is the protocol for such matters among theme developers? Is there a way to ask if an active developer might update her themes? Or does she own them & have to give permission (which would be hard since her former website no longer exists).
If any theme developers would be willing to update Almost Spring, if that's considered kosher, I'd be very happy.
Also, if anyone has special favorite themes that have a similar sense of visual style to hers, I'd love to hear about them.
