TASCHEN AMERICA L.L.C. (W/A/CA) H. R. Giger
Following the SUMO-sized monograph which was begun shortly before the artist's unexpected death, this affordable anniversay edition again pays homage to Giger's unique vision. The book shows the complete story of Giger's life and art, his sculptures, film work, and iconic album covers as well as the heritage he 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.
