Format: Hardcover
Giger's art, like the music of Marilyn Manson, the paintings of Jackson Pollock, and the clothing taste of Cher, tends to provoke extreme reactions in people (the classic "love-hate" relationship). This book, as well as the first Necronomicon volume, delves deep into the subconscious and comes up with fists full of squirming demons and violent yet artful sexual imagery. Some people are so repulsed by these "shadowed" parts of the psyche that they condemn Giger's art in general, while others wallow in the decay and degradation he depicts, believing it to be a mirror of the world they see around them. I personally keep Giger's work next to that of Alex Grey on my bookshelf, representing the dark repressed side of human nature coexisting along with the transcendental, spiritual side. Some may call Giger's art spiritual; I personally find it far too celebratory of the flesh for it to be truly spiritually-themed. If you are considering buying this book, first of all be forewarned: it is graphic and disturbing, but if you're looking at Giger books to begin with you probably already knew that. Also, I find the first Necronomicon volume to be better than this one. But if you are a fan you definitely will not be disappointed. You should probably buy one of Giger's lower-priced retrospectives if you're only going to have one of his books, but the attractively presented Necronomicons are the logical next step if you find yourself wanting more. Giger's work is very yin; just make sure you have some yang on your bookshelf to balance it.

Format: Hardcover
this book is a wonderfull addition to any collector of HR Gigers work.
This is a large hardback book with glossy interior pages filled with the paintings of his work and marker drawings, considering that his paintings were completed using an airbrush with only loose masks is remarkable at the detail in his work.
I bought the book from Amazon and in due course When I received it, it was brand new and wrapped and came in a big box which was inside a sack, so the book was in perfect condition, so if you want it this is the place to buy it..

As Giger fans, this is an excellent follow-up to "Necronomicon", with more gorgeous pictures. Another excellent gift for that special weirdo in your life.

Gigers second necronomicon book is as good as art gets. The first book being incredible and the second is no less hypnotizing. Giger shows us the nightmares, the macabre, the darkness inside of us. Any artist that makes such a statement and that can make most viewers feel uneasy is no less than a master.

There is little for me to say in this review. Amazon has listed this as Temporarily Out Of Stock for some time now. Buy from Morpheus fine art (the publisher) in the new and used section. If you're not a fan of giger but are curious, google around. Buy this book if you already love his work and want a large format printing.

Format: Hardcover
Horrific? Yes, but beautiful none the less. The art in this book offers a great view into Giger's mind. Giger's use of the airbrush is phenomenal, giving his art a very realistic style to it. While flipping the pages, I felt like I was either reliving a nightmare or viewing satan's personal photo album. A truly unique experience.

I highly recommend this book based on its unique and excellently rendered imagery.
