Black & White: read all over

There is irony in the fact that some of Scottish independent Black & White’s success over the past few years is partially down to the multinational bête noire of many a small publisher. The Edinburgh-based firm was founded in 1999 by m.d. Campbell Brown and publishing director Alison McBride as primarily a non-fiction specialist, with “some fiction picked up if it was something that we really loved and couldn’t resist”, explains Brown. That changed markedly when Amazon launched the Kindle.
