Bet you didn't know that New Zealand had such an outstanding bunch of science fiction and fantasy illustrators. If you love creativity and imagination then do not miss out on this book, (and it's prequel White cloud worlds: volume 1).
There are 41 emerging and established artists in this book. Each artist has written a short blurb about themselves, their work, background and aspirations which can be very entertaining. Then there is a showcase of their work, usually two or three pieces all printed in lavish full colour. (lovely word: lavish).
This gorgeous book has a cornucopia of illustrative styles, and what is more, once you have finished looking at the book you can look up all the artists on their websites and blogs which are included in the book. I have bookmarked all my favourites!! Get this book and have a look for yourself.
