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.
