Information
Postcardbook of 30 POSTCARDS by HR Giger ARh+ and published by Taschen GmbH, Koln, in 1993.

The book is in good condition (clean illustrated softcover with red lettering on the front), with only minor handling and storage wear. Internally, the loosely inserted postcards are clean and there are no tears and no inscriptions.

H. R. Giger is recognized as one of the world's foremost artists of Fantastic Realism. Giger's first book, Necronomicon, published in 1977, served as the visual inspiration for director Ridley Scott's blockbuster movie Alien, Giger's first film assignment, earning him the 1980 Oscar for "Best Achievement in Visual Effects," for his designs of the film's title character and otherworldly environment. Giger's album covers for Debbie Harry and the band ELP were voted among the 100 best in music history in a survey of rock journalists. Throughout his career, Giger also worked in sculpture and, in 1992, created his first total environment, the Giger Bar in Chur. The Museum H.R. Giger in Chateau Saint-Germain was opened in Gruyeres in 1998. On 12 May 2014, Giger died in a hospital in Zürich after having suffered injuries in a fall.

In a New York Times obituary, Timothy Leary, a friend of Giger's, was quoted as having praised the artist by saying, 'Giger's work disturbs us, spooks us, because of its enormous evolutionary time span. It shows us, all too clearly, where we come from and where we are going.'

A collection of 30 postcards.
