BRICK BULLETIN 2017

The Brick Bulletin exists to celebrate architectural brickwork. If you have worked on a project that substantially uses clay brick and consider it to potentially be of ineterest to our readers, we would welcome details and images. All suggestions would be gratefully received by tomfarmer@brick.org.uk. The publication is funded by our members and is entirely editorially-led.
