English Heritage to publish 'Blue Plaques' guidebook

September Publishing is to publish the first official "compact but comprehensive" guidebook to the Blue Plaques of London, in partnership with English Heritage.

"This handy, authoritative guide will offer the reader a fascinating compendium of the characters commemorated by the blue plaques scheme, and the houses where they lived and were inspired", the publisher said. "From the homes of Samuel Pepys to Jimi Hendrix, The English Heritage Guide to London's Blue Plaques will bring the city's streets and buildings alive."

Hannah MacDonald, publisher of September, said: "We are thrilled to be working with English Heritage to bring out this treasure-trove of a book. It's a significant partnership for a young imprint like September Publishing."

The guide will be published September 2016 as an illustrated paperback and e-book.
