This lavish large-format volume offers never-before-seen insights into HR Giger’s creative environment and conveys how Giger worked and continued to build his own visual cosmos.

The art of HR Giger (1940–2014), Swiss-born creator of the legendary monster in Ridley Scott's Alien, is currently experiencing a renaissance and is featured in exhibitions as well as in magazines around the globe. This lavish large-format volume offers never-before-seen insights into Giger’s private house and garden, both of which are populated by biomechanical sculptures, airbrush paintings, Alien furniture, objects, prints, and self-portraits. French photographer Camille Vivier—best known for her work for Stella McCartney and Cartier—enjoyed exclusive access to the artist’s Zurich home and studio, where she worked on her own as well as with models in a series of photo sessions.

Vivier’s more than two hundred photographs form an atmospheric tribute to the arguably most distinguished representative of fantastic realism. In addition to images of Giger’s studio and his life-size sculptures, Vivier has also documented at least one hundred objects and artworks, as well as his famous Alien-style garden railroad. An essay by French publicist Farbrice Paineu that places Giger’s art in the wider context of pop culture and the genre of horror movies rounds out this volume.
