A special calendar has been launched featuring 12 designs by Letchworth master planner Barry Parker.
The watercolour studies – which were catalogued by Gemma Leader of the Garden City Collection – showcase the skill of Parker, an accomplished artist and architect who designed garden cities.
Gemma said: “These beautiful watercolour sketches were painted by Barry Parker during his time at art school in South Kensington in the late 19th Century.
“Students at South Kensington were inspired by intricate designs of the past and were encouraged to imitate these as part of their artistic training.”
