New Zealand, home to Weta Workshop, is a fantasy/scifi concept art powerhouse. And now, art book White Cloud Worlds showcases all the ways New Zealand artists have brought fantasies to life. We've got a gallery.

The anthology's editors introduce the book:

White Cloud Worlds is a never-before seen collection of science fiction and fantasy artwork from New Zealand, 'The Land of the Long White Cloud'.

Embark upon a journey of exploration into a wealth of visually rich worlds and imaginings, conjured to life by 27 established and emerging artists.

The artists are profiled with a selection of their art accompanied by text written in their own unique voice, sharing their origins, inspirations and a rare glimpse into how they work.

White Cloud Worlds includes written contributions from some of the world's most celebrated leaders in the fields of science fiction and fantasy art, such as Guillermo Del Toro, Richard Taylor, Alan Lee and John Howe.

The book will be available in early November, and you can learn more about the artists and where to get the book on the book website here.
