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.

This year's merchandise is created by Bob Graham, winner of 2017 CBCA Picture Book of the Year for Home in the Rain
