Britain’s iconic blue plaques identify buildings that were home to, or significant in the success of, notable historical figures. In this celebration of individual achievement, Mike Read, who helped create a series of plaques for BBC Music Day in 2017, presents 100 such commemorations, with illustrations of the plaques, photographs and biographical details. From David Bowie to William Shakespeare, each entry contains an often surprising link to the next featured plaque.
