(pronounced RUHN-ning bahnd)

Although this term could technically describe 007 in hot pursuit of an evil megalomaniac in Ian Fleming’s iconic spy series, we’re speaking of bonds a little less glamorous, but equally as international and ubiquitous: bricks and mortar. The running bond is the most basic and humble of bonds – i.e., brick patterns. It is comprised of continuous horizontal joints, but the vertical joints are consistently offset.
