Awards in " The Studio' Prize Competitions

We have received from Messrs. Roberson and
Co., of Long Acre, two sketch-books of novel
character, which will doubtless meet with general
approval among artists. One, called after this
magazine, "The Studio," is covered with an
appropriate "Studio-green" linen, and contains
leaves of a superior quality of paper, similar in
appearance to that used for bank-notes—a paper
affected at the present time by many artists for lead
pencil and other studies. The other book, known
as the "J. M. Swan," is made of drawing paper of
a pleasant texture, tinted a " grocer-blue," shade,
and is well adapted for sketches in black and white


The number of drawings, &c, re-
ceived each month in connection with

The Studio competitions being very large, the
Editor wishes it to be clearly understood that,
while every effort will be made to forward as
promptly as possible to their owners those designs
with which the requisite sum for postage has been
enclosed, he cannot, under any circumstances,
guarantee a definite date for their return.
