Academic Papers

Pigmentum are currently developing their academic publication programme. Arising out of our work on the ‘Compendium’, and as a result of ongoing research, we now have a substantial group of papers going through the preparation and pre-publication process. As these appear in press, we will be posting the citations and short abstracts here.

In the meantime, here are some papers we have published in the last five years. If you have difficulty obtaining copies of any of these, please contact us and we will try and help.

The papers for which downloads are provided are Adobe PDF documents: reading them requires the Adobe Reader program.
