Just when I think Titan can spoil us no more in 2019, they go ahead and announce another new book to excitement my nerdiness! Announced via Bloody Disgusting, Titan are going to be publishing a pretty interesting new book called Alien: 40 Years, 40 Artists Book!

Alien: 40 Years, 40 Artists" is an artistic tribute to the sci-fi horror masterpiece Alien. 40 artists, filmmakers, and fans have been invited to contribute a piece of original art to commemorate the 40th anniversary of Alien in 2019.

Pieces range from alternative posters to gothic interpretations of key scenes. Sketches, process pieces, and interview text accompany each new and unique nightmare.

In addition to cover artist Dane Hallet—an Alien: Covenant concept artist—the contributors include Blade Runner 2049 director Denis Villeneuve, Sam Hudecki, and Tanya Lapointe; Star Wars concept artist and creature designer Terryl Whitlatch; and Kong: Skull Island director Jordan Vogt-Robert, and Jon Wilcox.

I will never get sick of seeing Dane Hallet’s Alien art and those are some pretty heavy hitters involved with this book! Alien: 40 Years, 40 Artists is currently slated for release on the 10th of October, just a week before Alien: Prototype is due to hit the shelves.

If you head on over to Bloody Disgusting, they also have the exclusive reveals of the cover art for both Alien: Prototype and the novelization of Alien: Isolation.

Denis Villeneuve and Tanya Lapointe,
husband and wife.
A indicator of the future?

I find this equally sad and ironic, because Giger contributed a piece for the 'Star Wars' book which was along these lines, a few years ago, yet he's no longer with us to do anything for this collection.

Aside from Hallet, can't say I'm familiar with the artistic output of any of those names, however.

Titan are seriously on a roll at the moment. This sounds super interesting!

Nice, I love me some art books.

I can confirm that I am a part of this also. And seeing some of these other names, I'm freaking out a little.

Thought so! This pleases me greatly!  ;D

I'm hoping to see some of the old legends in here too. Beauvais, Plunkett, Bolton as well please!
