Editorial Reviews for this title:
Widely considered the most popular sci-fi/fantasy artist in the world, H. R. Giger is known for his singular ability to meticulously render horrific yet irresistible otherworlds, complete with curious biomorphic figures engaging in mysterious melodramas. Harlan Ellison has called the famous Swiss artist and film designer “our latter-day Hieronymus Bosch,” a judgment confirmed by the new edition of this beautifully designed calendar. Giger’s singular blend of the demonic and the erotic is well-displayed in these 12 large-format works. The calendar grids are printed in colors matching the work for that month, and they are set against a deep black background that foregrounds Giger’s highly detailed, elegant approach to his craft. This year’s edition of the calendar features a number of previously unpublished images — of both paintings and sculptures — while also showcasing some old favorites from this modern master.
