Kim Veltman

For over 30 years, Professor Kim Veltman (1948-2020) was the acknowledged world’s number one expert on perspective. He was also a leading scholar of Leonardo da Vinci, new media, and the history of the alphabet at the same time. Kim was a scholar who fervently studied the past—so that we might all learn how to shape the future conscientiously for the benefit of humanity.

Kim did so while being cognisant that there are—in reality—no isolated topics or unbreachable boundaries between things or people/organisations; because everything is connected to everything else (potentially in one sense or another).

Accordingly, Kim sought holistic viewpoints and uniting world-views—and he emphasised the myriad of links between different cultures, religions, subjects, alphabets, and languages.


PRC maintains the official archive of Professor Kim Veltman’s lifetime publications. This incredible knowledge bank consists of several million words on perspective, Leonardo da Vinci, old and new media, and the alphabet’s history.

Kim’s writings are spread across over 400 publications, including 20 books; 4 major treatises; an unpublished treaty manuscript on Leonardo’s optics (1200 pages); 82 chapters in books; 24 papers in refereed journals; 84 articles, 16 reviews, and 10 vision statements. Plus, we hold extensive records, including design plans, on Kim’s visionary System for Universal Multimedia Searching (SUMS).

The upshot is that Kim’s significant and monumental contribution(s) cut right across traditional subject disciplines in the arts and sciences. Kim’s work stands as a testament to the comprehensive approach of the generalist—someone who studies all subjects meticulously and expansively—and who follows penetrating causal chains wherever they may lead. 

Kim Veltman Archive

Here at the PRC, we have built an archive of everything that Kim wrote in his lifetime, as detailed below.

Kim Veltman publications: Kim_Veltman_Archive.pdf

Kim Veltman CV: Kim Veltman CV.pdf

Kim Veltman Publications

Kim Veltman published a huge volume of written work over his lifetime, amounting to several million words, spread across several hundred individual publications.

Here at the PRC, we intend to publish every single one of Kim’s amazing works; including all of his unpublished works. It is our opinion that the archive represents a vitally important scientific resource for humanity.

Listed in the archive are over 400 publications written by Kim that we shall make available for free download, but please be aware that due to the size of the task, it will be some time before we can make everything public.

As detailed in his CV, Kim developed over 400 lectures and seminars (in a variety of media formats), and we do not intend to publish these at present; however, as time allows, we may decide to publish remarkable examples including a video lecture series by Kim on the alphabet, plus examples of power point presentations etc.

This Kim Veltman publications page is only at an early stage of development. 

This page provides a select list of classic books, articles and other publications on perspective and related topics by Professor Kim Veltman.

At present, we are in the process of shelving our vast library on perspective and related topics. Until that task is complete, we have suspended the development of the Kim Veltman publications page. Watch this space!

The Kim Veltman reading list does not replace the far more extensive Perspective Bibliography (15,000 titles), or the Perspective Science Library Catalogue (5,000 titles). To see all of titles held/listed at the PRC, readers should consult the contents of those lists.

I appreciate your patience.
