Limner is a critical journal of illustration and visual communication which presents an ongoing discourse surrounding the discipline in order to broaden and diversify the context in which it is understood. By combining a wide range of voices within and outside of illustration, Limner hopes to reflect illustration’s position in relation and connected to wider creative and cultural practices, encouraging new interpretations.
The fourth edition takes as its starting point ideas around Gesture. The issue draws on multiple sources, looking at ideas of freedom and control, authorship and production, commodification and technology, action, and reaction; gesture is situated against the intersecting categories of communication, work, and ritual—an intersection at which the discipline of illustration often finds itself positioned.
