V. 6c D. Bricks : (Brochure issued by
the Societa Anonima G. Verzocchi, i,
Corso Italia, Milan,) Probably never
before has a firebrick or anything like it
been introduced to the British public in
so sumptuous a guise as this " V. & D."
brick. Signor Verzocchi has secured the
collaboration of a number of talented
artists, and has reproduced their drawings
in colour, in photogravure and in line.
These drawings, with the preface in
English and the information given on
the tissues, supply an almost complete

account of the bricks. We see the works
at Newcastle-upon-Tyne, where they are
made, the uses to which they are put, their
shapes and sizes : and the illustrations
vary in medium from woodcut to water-
colour, and in style from the Pennellesque
Blast Furnaces we reproduce to the amus-
ing symbolical fantasies of Sig. Depero.
All the illustrations are of very high merit
and of really extraordinary variety. 0
