H.R. Giger

H.R. Giger, born Hans Ruedi Giger, is a Swiss surrealist who is known to most of us for his work on the movie Alien. His art and design work is noted by his use of the airbrush technique extraordinarily mixed with his strange, nightmarish visions of the human body and machines. The term "biomechanical" is often associated with his imagery.

Giger Tarot

H.R. Giger Tarot

"This collectable group of beautifully designed Tarot cards is available in a handsome boxed set containing 22 Tarot cards, a poster with card laying plan and a booklet of instructions with about 60 illustrations. Each card is a careful reproduction of one of Giger's paintings, and is interpreted by philosopher-magician Akron in a booklet of instructions, included with the set."

This item is part of my Giger collection and I highly recommend it. It goes in and out of print quite regularly and the price can greatly fluctuate. I believe it sold for $14.95 originally...but has been hard to find for that price recently.

Giger's Alien Autographed Bust

"In 1979, artist H. R. Giger created what is considered one of the most frightening monsters of our time. Since that time, the ALIEN xenomorph has become one of the most popular and recognizable creature designs ever created. Constructed of polystone with hand-painted detailing and a smoked resin dome, this replication of the ALIEN head captures the creature’s intense bio-mechanical style."

If you like Giger's art, this is a good book for a collector to start with. This book goes out of print very often and is hard to find. Generally during those times, if you can find a copy, the price if usually very high.

I own this book and recommend it highly. As of today at Amazon.com, it is priced lower than I originally paid and is available with free shipping.
