Customer Review

on 8 September 2011
Alien Vault is a 175 paged lavishly illustrated volume defining the story behind Ridley Scott's Alien. The volume comes with Boxed sleeve which suits the book really well, the story to most die-hard fans is well-known and nothing new is really revealed in this book, is basically a slightly expanded version of the 1979 Futura release of "The Book Of Alien", its well laid out and easy to read and one is going to dip into this volume from time to time, there are continuity polaroid snaps of certain scenes, sketches and a few candid photos of the Movie sets. The most interesting element of this book is the enclosed " Artifacts", 5 tracing paper pouches hold: a small sized Nostromo blueprint, a sticker badge of the Nostromo Logo, samples of Ridley Scott's Storyboards, Ron Cobb sketch, two Giger illustrations ( space jockey & face hugger), a script page sample, and two A4 Alien movie lobby posters. Each chapter is interspaced with a Nostromo Deck logo--a nice touch, and best of all is on the inside covers is the correctly spelt WEYLAN--YUTANI logo's. My favorite photo is of a thoughtful Sigourney Weaver on the Garage Deck of the Nostromo--near where Brett is taken by the Alien, All in all Ian Nathan has written and produced a worthy volume on this Iconic Science Fiction movie and its highly recommended.
