White Cloud Worlds (Volume 2) is an incredible collection of science fiction and fantasy artwork from Aotearoa New Zealand. It is the follow-up to the award-winning publication of the same name.
Let the work of 41 established and emerging artists who call New Zealand home elevate you once again to the expansive, rich plateau of the imagination - where each artist is lavishly showcased with a selection of their work and accompanying text that share their origins, inspirations and ambitions.
This book also includes written contributions from two of the world’s leading masters of the imagination, Ian McCaig and Wayne Barlowe.
The work within these pages celebrates not only the skill of the artists but the breadth of their imaginations. From the beautiful to the bizarre, frightening to fantastical, allow yourself a break from the mundane and get lost in the visually
rich creations detailed in this book. You might find that you may not want to leave!
