First edition, first print paperback of HR GIGER ARh+. Editing and production by Gaby Falk and published by Taschen GmbH, Koln, in 2001. With Foreword by Timothy Leary.

The book is in good condition (Clean illustrated Softcover with flaps and white lettering on front), with only minor wear to two top corners (slight rubbing). Internally, the pages are clean and tight and there are no tears and no inscriptions.

H. R. Giger is recognized as one of the world's foremost artists of Fantastic Realism. Born in 1940 in Chur Switzerland, he studied architecture and industrial design at the School of Applied Arts in Zurich. By 1964 he was producing his first artworks, mostly ink drawings and oils, leading to his first solo exhibition in 1966, followed by the world-wide distribution of his first published posters in 1969. Shortly after, he discovered the airbrush and his own signature freehand style, and created his most well known works, the Biomechanical dreamscapes which formed the cornerstone of his fame.

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. Today, Giger continued to live and work in Zurich with his companion in life Carmen, where his projects include the realization of his museum bar in Gruyeres. H.R Giger was named in the Science Fiction and Fantasy Hall of Fame in 2013. 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.'

"H.R. Giger ARh+ explores the inner hidden world within Giger's pictures - a survey of works by the Swiss artist that encompasses his entire oeuvre, a phantagorical realm of biopsycho-techno creations that Hieronymous Bosch would stand up and cheer.

A book in TASCHEN’s Basic Art Series which features a detailed chronological summary of the life and oeuvre of the artist, covering his or her cultural and historical importance, a concise biography, approximately 100 colour illustrations with explanatory captions"

'The more famous I get, the more I am tolerated, albeit with some head-shaking.' — H.R. Giger

Book size: 7.3" x 9.1". 96 pages. Illustrated with colour and black & white plates within the text.
