The Weta Cave is proud to host some of the incredible artists behind these books for a signing session and question and answer.

White Cloud Worlds is an anthology of science fiction and fantasy artwork from Aotearoa New Zealand edited by Paul Tobin. The "Crème de la crème" of New Zealand fantasy art has just got a unique showcase in this fantastic book.

Featuring a collection of works from each of 27 individual artists, this book catalogues and illustrates a wide variety of art that has shaped and influenced pop culture not only in New Zealand, but throughout the world. Along with the stunning artworks, many created for this project, Paul Tobin has asked each artist to write about their motivations, dreams, techniques and influences.

Paul Tobin is uniquely placed to be the gathering force on this project, having worked for many years in Weta's design room on projects like The Chronicles of Narnia, King Kong and Avatar and already having one book under his belt - The Crafting of Narnia. White Cloud Worlds is Paul's first book to be published through his own company Ignite Inc.

Like Paul, many of the artists work, or have at one time in their careers, worked at Weta Workshop and have helped shape movies such as The Lord Of The Rings, The Chronicles Of Narnia, King Kong, Avatar and District 9. Other artists have forged their own path and worked their unique brand of talent on gaming, graphic novels and comics.

With written contributions from some of the world's most celebrated leaders in the field of science fiction and fantasy art, such as Richard Taylor, Guillermo Del Toro, Alan Lee and John Howe this stunning book has received some of the most sought-after endorsements possible in the fantasy and science fiction genres.

An exclusive competition is also running at The Weta Cave in November for customers who purchase the slipcase edition of the book.
