LIMN is an experimental academic magazine created by Stephen Collier, Andrew Lakoff, and Christopher Kelty with the assistance of graphic designer Martin Hoyem.

Named after the decorated manuscripts of the Middle Ages, LIMN caters to both the academic affection for print and the need for lighter, faster publishing formats. The result is a promising alternative to institutionalized journals that combines concise 1000 word essays with visual support.

The first issue on the theme of ‘systemic risk’ is available through Amazon. The essays are already available online, but for anyone interested in the specific topic there is something appealing about the printed format.
