    From their announcement:
    The Art of District 9 - The guns, the aliens, the vehicles, the graphic language. Follow the design process from the initial concepts right through to the big screen

    District 9 - one of the most successful movies of 2009. Nominated for 4 Academy Awards including Best Picture. Written and directed by Neill Blomkamp and produced by Peter Jackson.

    It features in the Top 100 movies of all time on the Internet Movie Database, IMDb.com. Dealing with race relations through the language of science fiction, it touched people the world over.

    The guns, the aliens, the vehicles, the graphic language - the world of District 9 was designed and developed here at Weta Workshop.
    Richard Taylor, Weta's Creative Director and five time Academy Award winner, together with designers Greg Broadmore, David Meng, Leri Greer and Christian Pearce worked closely with Neill Blomkamp and have contributed hundreds of pieces of conceptual art to this book.

    The Art of District 9: Weta Workshop tells the story from start to finish and illustrates the conceptual design process. How early sketches developed and evolved into the movie you saw on your screens.

    Daniel Falconer, Weta designer and author of The Crafting Of Narnia and The World of Kong, has collected the material and written The Art Of District 9: Weta Workshop.

    Cover Design by Leri Greer.
