Richmond Unchained in The Independent and i Newspaper

An article I wrote about Bill Richmond and my book Richmond Unchained featured over three pages as The Independent newspaper's 'Big Read' feature on Thursday 27 August - appropriately enough this was just a day after the Richmond Unchained launch event at the Tom Cribb pub.

Bill Richmond completists should also be aware that an alternative version of the feature also appeared in the i Newspaper the same day (a concise version of The Independent), with different illustrations and an alternative headline.

Scans of the articles are below, while you can also click here to view the online version of the story
