WWW HR GIGER COM Hard Cover.
by H.R. Giger.
Gigers work made such an impression on me when I discovered him in the early 80s that Ive always sought his work out. The fact that his work was prominent in both film and several album covers over the years.. I didnt have to look far. This volume is a good example of over thirty years of his history as an artist with plenty of photos and text from Giger himself. -- Dave.
OVERVIEW: Giger first received acclaim in the 1960s with his airbrushed fantasy landscapes. However, he scored his breakthrough in applied art, and particularly in his high-profile movie work on Ridley Scotts Alien, for which he received an Oscar for "Best Achievement for Visual Effects" for his designs of the films title creature and its otherworldly environment. His other celebrated film projects include Poltergeist II, Alien 3, and Species, while Gigers album covers for Debbie Harry and Emerson, Lake, and Palmer were voted as being among the top hundred in music history by music journalists, and furniture designed by Giger graces a bar in Chur, Switzerland.
Designed by the artist himself, this book features detailed commentaries in which Giger describes his work from the early 1960s to the late 1990s - the authentic voice of the master.
