H. R. Giger, Oscar-winning designer of the hit movie Alien and widely considered the world's finest dark fantasy artist, redefined edgy, contemporary art starting in the 1980s with his biomorphic creatures inhabiting gorgeously grim dystopias. His visionary art is unmistakable. Unfettered by labels or category, Giger's work has appeared in every conceivable format  from set design to sculpture, paintings to airbrush, book covers to album covers. This massive, oversized volume, limited to just 300 copies worldwide, showcases 200 of Giger's paintings and sculptures, including design paintings for Emerson, Lake and Palmer albums, and the film Poltergeist II. The book is bound in black leather, with a black cloth slipcase  all embossed in gold foil. It includes a signed and numbered print of one of Giger's drawings, which can be removed and framed. The foreword by longtime Giger fan Harlan Ellison, who calls him  our latter-day Hieronymus Bosch," adds welcome context and insight.
