Book Week Merchandise now available directly from our new eStore
Merchandise for 2014 ~ Connect to reading ~ Reading to connect
This year’s Children’s Book Week merchandise has been created using artwork by Ron Brooks, winner of last year’s 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 slogan. 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.
We invite you to explore the beautiful items created using Ron Brook’s unique artwork. From library bags to bookmarks, stickers to posters, there is something for everyone – children, teachers, librarians, parents. All items are quality productions, with the greatest care taken to showcase Ron Brook’s artwork in the best way possible.
