   Great bargain book for H.R. Giger fans
Let me start by saying that I paid less than one dollar for a used copy of this pretty little book on Amazon. I have only one other H.R. Giger Book Necronomicon, which is an amazing large coffee table size art book filled with large super high color images, is nothing like that book and its no wonder that Necronomicon cost me $300! This is still a great little book, filled with lots of color and black and white images of Giger's artwork. There is also a basic biography, interesting stories and history of the artist. I would recommend this book to H.R. first time viewers. Gigers'work or hardcore fans looking for a cheaper book that they can read and flip without feeling guilty about ruining a more expensive book. Great artist, Great book.

   Giger
First of all, there is no one quite like Giger. All his works are real, they just don 't seem to have crossed into reality. This book gives a sample of his work and, believe me, some of them will stay with you forever. He has brought the work of film creation into an art form. None of us will ever forget Alien and none of us should ever forget the artist who gave him life : Maria L. Says : When a wolf is chasing you, throw him a biscuit, but don 't stop to bake him a cake ) by Valdemi, Maria L. Hardcover, LAC Communications, Inc.

   Damaged But Too Late to Reorder
It was damaged, but it was too late to re-order in time for Christmas, so it kept. Interior of the book was damaged only the cover and ends were beautiful.

   Affordable Taschen book... Well done Giger
I tried to buy this book used... Amazon helpfully replaced my choice with a new book in their warehouse that cost $10 more. I rea ly don 't want them to change things, especially when it comes to their earnings. When I can, I buy from non-Amazon sellers if I can... Bezos can do without. Taschen publishes some of the best art books in the world. This book was one of their 2.0 series consisting of affordable books at a low price.

   An important alternative art document
There is no such thing as Giger. There are also pieces of texts that detail Giger and his work, one written by him. A biomechanics step into the world of good beginnings. I wish there was a huge comprehensive study in print form.
