    1. The genesis of perhaps the most iconic monster in movie history told through the medium of HR Giger's production sketches and finished art for Ridley Scott's sci-fi classic. Giger's diary also provides a welcome and illuminating insight into the making of the movie. Simply put, the birth of a legendary nightmare that still gives me chills.


    2. Giger's "Alien" is written by the artist behind the massively famous alien in the popular film. It is noted that his nightmares have inspired the monster, it is a personal diary as well. He was on set and designed and illustrated throughout the movies. There are incredible full color sketches, paintings, pictures from the film and from behind the scenes. A perfect book for any rabid horror buff!.



    3. More! I want more! These collected diary entries and sketches are such a great insight into the intense schedule and work that went into the jewel that is Alien. It also shows some of the (justified) anger and frustration that Giger experienced in trying to bring his vision to life.


    4. Absolutely incredible! Riveting. Alien is a behind-the-scenes diary about the artistic vision and painstaking craft behind the creation of the sets, props, and other visuals for Alien (1979), a film which features of one of the most breathtaking creatures that have ever appeared on film. Written by H.R. Giger, who can surely be considered to be among the most imaginative artists ever, it is a journey through the unearthly nature of Alien as a film, the world Giger created within it, and the arti [...]


    5. Quite interesting, and full of unintentionally hilarious insights from grumpy Giger. Seeing how much work went into the sets and designs was very impressive, and it seemed like some of the abandoned ideas may have eventually found their way into later films. A fairly short read though - twice the length (read: amount of photos) would have made me much happier.


    6. This was an amazing addendum to the Making of Alien book all told through the eyes of H.R.Giger. Found it buried in a pile at a booksale and was over the moon as I hadn't read it since I was a teenager. Great book!


    7. A fantastic book to accompany the sci-fi classic. Whether you’re a fan of Giger himself or simply Scott’s movie, these glossy pages of behind the scenes artwork and set production will catapult your inner geek to the surface immediately—and he will thank you for it.




    8. Did the art inspire the movies or did the movies inspire the art? Who cares. Look at it! It will give you delicious nightmares.




    9. Naturally, the art in this stands on its own but Giger's mad, obsessive, protective, frustrated and (at times) surprisingly open accounts of his work on "Alien" were quite fascinating.
