Richard is also the author of two very well received books of social history – but if that sounds dry, believe us, these books are anything but. “The Farm” is an account of the erosion and ultimate loss of his family’s way of life in Yorkshire. His second book, ‘The Valley’, is an epic sweep through the lives of a mining community in the 20th century. They are remarkable, unforgettable pieces of work. Richard also spent a period as editor of ‘The Face‘, an extremely influential arts magazine that almost defined the British modern music and cultural scenes in the 1980’s and ’90s.
Photographer James McNaught then followed in Richard’s footsteps to gather the beautiful shots that now illustrate what was to become a powerful insight into who we are and what we do.
Hole and Corner is first and foremost a beautiful print publication and as such is not fully available to read on line.
We are grateful Richard, James, Sam, and ‘Hole and Corner’ managing director Nick Watts for making the article ‘Liquid Assets’ available to Bruichladdich for download as a PDF. See the download button on this page.
We hope you enjoy it and that it will inspire you to subscribe to the magazine here.
