About the Author

H.R. Giger (1940–2014) was a Swiss surrealist painter, sculptor and set designer. He first received acclaim in the 1960s with his airbrushed fantasy landscapes, and rose to fame through high profile movie work, most notably as part of the team behind the visual effects in Alien, which won an Academy Award. H.R. Giger's album covers for Debbie Harry and Emerson, Lake and Palmer were voted as being among the top hundred in music history by music journalists, while furniture designed by Giger graces bars from Tokyo to Switzerland. H.R Giger was named in the Science Fiction and Fantasy Hall of Fame in 2013. H.R. Giger‘s many titles for TASCHEN include the Collector’s Edition Hologramm (1998), one of the first large format books TASCHEN ever published, as well as www HR Giger com, and HR Giger Arh+.

I gave it as a gift and he loved it!
KSlem01
What I like most about the book is that it gives the same amount of attention to his well known works, such as Alien and Species, as it does to his lesser known works.

Even though I have only read limited portions of the book--it is worth it!

An excellent choice for a newer Giger fan or somebody who can`t justify purchasing the more expensive "coffee table" volumes. This little book is full of high-quality pictures,sketch reproductions,vintage photos and more.The timeline in the back is a great touch too.These smaller books are priced very reasonably,which means you can enjoy showing Giger`s INCREDIBLE work to friends,family and co-workers with less worry than the more expensive books. Even though I have only read limited portions of the book--it is worth it! I recommend buying this little gem for your own library or as a gift.
Thanks for reading!

this is a good book for some one looking to save money on the introduction to the surrealist art of h.r. giger, it has many previously published works from different books like biomechanics and necronomicon but it is a quarter of the size of those books, there are two versions of this book as well a small copy and the larger copy you will find with red on the cover...not all in black. it is also a stripped down version of H.R Giger .com...if i was to recommend a book out of all of the ones available i would say to fifst time buyers... get h.r. gigers biomechanics or one of the necronomicon books(or all of those), if you wont spend that much money or cant i would just get h.r. [...], but if you want this get the red copy its bigger, still the same exact book, just this one is smaller and less money....

The book I received was in perfect condition and featured some really great images. I gave it as a gift and he loved it! he said he might frame the pictures for art... either way a great buy.

The only book with an affordable price with giger imagery. Cool but very short. It has a Wikipedia resume of him.
