The CBCA produces a range of promotional items, including stickers for publishers to place on winning and honour books, and support materials for teachers, teacher librarians and public librarians. The range is always changing and developing.
The 2020 Book Week Merchandise will be available for viewing across our social medias soon. Qld Branch will only be delivering pre-orders this year, as we did last year. Keep checking our newsletter, Facebook page and Insta for updates!

Q: How would you describe your illustrative style?
