This year’s Children’s Book Week artwork has been created by Ron Brooks, winner of the 2013 Picture Book of the Year Award. Ron has used a scratchboard technique and quality ink colouring to create a piece that will resonate with all ages.
The addition of Ron Brook’s unique typography invites the viewer to actively interact with the artwork and respond to the slogans.
Connect to reading is about enjoying the experience of exploring story, and travelling to other worlds.
The reflected slogan. Reading to connect, has a broader social meaning, suggesting that reading assists in creating a bond with others. Within the world of the contemporary child, this is also relevant as they read books and they read to connect through a variety of media.
