Taschen HR Giger MonographOctober 19th, 2016
Esteemed art book publisher Taschen is now taking pre-orders for what might be the definitive H.R. Giger book. As well it should, because it costs a blood-curdling $900 (USD). Simply titled H.R. Giger, the 400-page monograph “shows the complete story of Giger’s life and art, his sculptures, film works, and iconic album covers as well as the heritage he has left us in his own artist’s museum and self-designed bar in the Swiss Alps. In an in-depth essay, Giger scholar Andreas J. Hirsch plunges into the themes of Giger’s oeuvre and world while an extensive artist biography draws on contemporary quotes and Giger’s own writings.”
The book is limited to 1,000 copies, each signed by H.R.’s second wife Carmen on behalf of the H.R. Giger Estate.
