‘[An] outstandingly valuable book.’

"Dr Brunskill’s expanded volume on brick building in Britain appears at an important time, and could help bricks to enjoy many more decades of success."—David Mason, Construction History Society Newsletter

"Brick and Clay Building in Britain is an essential reference work and should find a rightful home on shelves in conservation offices up and down the country. Even if you think you know your brick bonds pretty well, Brunskill is certain to have noticed that elusive one you have not yet come across and recorded it here."—Michael Scammell, CONTEXT
