From Antennae Books, “Polaroids: H.R. Giger.” A collection of personal snapshots by the late Swiss artist and Academy Award-winning film designer best known for Alien.

032C Magazine explores the book, which was released earlier this year (and is oddly unavailable via Amazon, at this time). Snip:

Giger’s role in Alien did more than make the film scary—it also made it erotic. After all, sex, death, and biomechanics are what distinguish Giger’s true original oeuvre. In the recently published book H.R. Giger: Polaroids—comprised of a range of unpublished images by the artist—the skull model of the Alien head and tail are shown in 1979 series of two women using them as cyborg sex toys, BDSM beasts. Other Polaroids—which Giger personalized by scratching, painting, and drawing over them with surreal animations—include self-portraits, airbrushed fashion exoskeletons, and deeply disturbing moquettes that combine design, horror, fetish, pop, and an inscrutable sense of humor.
