border06_thumb“Limes” is a latin word that modern historians gave to the system of Roman fortifications established all along the borders of the Empire. It physically signals limits between territories, in terms of customs as well as with defensive aims. This terminology has been revived for the creation of a typography, “Limes New Roman”, registered by the artistic cooperative Société Réaliste and published in the Icon’s part of the issue #35 of the journal Multitudes, in winter 2009.
