H.R. Giger’s Alien Diaries is a new book that just caught my eye. It contains various sketches, Polaroids and hand-written diaries from when H.R. Giger was working on Ridley Scott’s Alien. He, of course, was responsible for creating the creatures, derelict spacecraft and space jockey. The book was originally released some time last year in Switzerland/Germany but now a company called Section 9 has brought it to America. At 660 pages, most of it is brand new material that we’ve never seen before and Giger’s notes are written in German, and have been transcribed as such but there are English translations there too. You can check out the official website at gigersaliendiaries.com and can be ordered here for a pricey $135 (£80). Check out the promo trailer and images below:
Can’t say I’ve ever heard of it before now. I’m sure a lot of collectors would love to get their hands on it. Thanks to AliensCollection for the news.
