International Centre for
the Picture Book in Society
Established in 2015 at the University of Worcester by the Illustration department, our Centre provides a focus with the making and study of the picture book in its broadest sense (children’s books, comics, hand-made books, zines and educational books, e-book, graphic novel). Its interests extend to engage with ‘society’ in its broadest terms by promoting multi-culturalism, inclusivity of all minorities and socially disenfranchised people. The Centre seeks to create an awareness in the UK of international picture book making outside of the Anglophone environment and a platform to promote and showcase internationally published picture books.
Through exhibitions, talks, workshops, community and international events we look to promote and advance the practice of Illustration and its engagement with new and previously over-looked audiences.
