Product description

www HR Giger com

HR Giger first recieved acclaim in the 1960s with his airbrushed fantasy landscapes. However he scored his breakthrough in appplied art, and particuarly in his high profile movie work on Ridley Scott's Alien. In 1980, he recieved an Oscar for "Best Achievement for Visual Effects" for his designs of the film's title creature and its otherworldly enviroment.

His other celebrated film projects include Poltergeist II, Alien 3 and Species, for which he designed a deadly but beautiful half - extraterrestrial female creature and a fantastic nightmare train. Giger's album covers for Debbie Harry and Emerson, Lake & Palmer were voted as being among the top hundred in music history by music journalists, while furniture designed by Giger graces a bar in Chur, Switzerland.

This book was designed by the artist himself, and features detailed commentaries in which Giger describes his work from early 1960s to the late 1990s; the authentic voice of the master.
