Embrace your inner goth. A defining work from the ( alas departed ) master.

Thanks for posting my Necronomicon book by H.R. Giger. I thinks it's absolutely great. I have a leather bound copy of the actual Necronomicon and think that H.R. Necronomicon is great with it.

Here is an excellent foundation of H.R. Giger's work for those sci-fi die-hards who appreciate intense subjects in both text and art. This books shows a wide range of H.R.'s various styles, each one drilling through contemporary notions of form, etiquette, and courtesy. It is a no-nonsense expose' of the nightmare-ish alter-dimensional world of Giger's dreams which taps into the source of human fear. I most strongly recommend this and all the other art books by H.R Giger to all folks who can think for themselves, who can put reality, physics, religion, politics, morals, mathmatics, et. al. in their own separate boxes for a moment, and who seek a startling sidebar from the mundane world.

After having seen some of Giger's work in Alien and some other more well know work I decided to buy Biomechanics. It was very good, but the Necronomicon is THE pilot book for all the rest of his works. It contains his most outstanding work as far as weird and the macabe go. A tour de force of his strange mind. A wonderous collection of strange and terrible images masterfully done. It is quite disturbing to look at but wonderfully fascinating at the same time. I guarantee if you buy this book you will not be able to put in down until you have read all the notes and seen every last picture, it's that good.

As Giger fans, this is an excellent follow-up to "Necronomicon", with more gorgeous pictures. Another excellent gift for that special weirdo in your life.

This is the place you feel an uncomfortable familiarity with. It excites and scares you in unison, but nonetheless you wish to be in his world. Especially when the lights are dim. Giger is a master of an area of our consciousness which few dare to go, and if you do, you have to keep a connecting thread to the "normal" world. His work fuels our most basic desires, this is what both draws and repels people. It is the most erotic art i have seen!

After receiving the Giger poster pack as a gift a couple of years ago I became instantly intrigued by Giger's work which is so unique and beautiful. This book perfectly illustrates the portrayal of images and synergy which giger expresses through his landscapes of deformed, yet compellingly beautiful creatures. Truly a genius who does not get the recognition he deserves. An excellent first choice for anyone who is curious about Giger's art.

Giger's Necronomicon is a fine way to introduce yourself to this Master's work. In it you will find amazing paintings, drawings, and photographs of the man and his work. It also includes a candid history of his personal life, including the story of his lover's tragic suicide. If you love fantastic works of complex art, HR Giger delivers in abundance.
