CBCA Book Week History
The CBCA Book Week has had a slogan since 1945, but until 1987 each branch created their own posters to illustrate the themes and promote events.
Since 1987 there has been a national theme chosen by the CBCA National Board.
Traditionally, the artwork is developed by the winner of the previous year's Picture Book of the Year Illustrator.
