H.R. Giger: Art Collections and Books

H.R. Giger has quite a few art books in print. These collections of bound fine art serve not only as coveted coffee table fare, but as interesting reading as well. Giger's art books contain an immensity of pictures as well as pages of information and anecdotes about Giger's life, how the paintings came to be, and countless other fascinating tidbits written mostly by Giger himself.

As you may expect, Giger's print portfolio doesn't stop at art books. He has a number of other works available as well. Among those is a desirably dark calendar, books about the making of Alien and Species from his perspective, and a few books with forwards and afterwards written by the Alien craftsman. He has even written a book, which someday he hopes will become a screenplay. Definitely give Giger's books a look, that's all it takes to be captivated by the biomechanical beauty flourishing under the cover.
