    Description

    Alien by H.R. Giger (20th Century Fox, 1978). Limited Edition Signed Complete Portfolio with (6) Prints (27.5" X 39.5").
    Swiss surrealist H.R. Giger has made a career out of bringing nightmares to gruesome and horrific life. His work on Ridley Scott's science fiction/horror classic gave the film its cold and menacing atmosphere, and would earn the artist an Academy Award. This gorgeous portfolio showcases some of the eerie work Giger provided for the film. Encased within a 28.5" X 41" hardcover folder are six prints featuring haunting images that include the crashed alien spacecraft, the wreck entrance, the cockpit, the interior of the egg silo, the doomed space jockey, and an alien egg housing a deadly facehugger. Released in a limited quantity, this portfolio is numbered 21/350. Each print is signed in the lower right corner by Giger. Five of the six prints have a bend in the upper left corner, and the space jockey print has a small tear in the upper edge. The outer folder shows expected wear, including scuffing. Giger/Alien enthusiasts will not want to miss out on this magnificent collection of prints by a gifted artist, and from the film that reminded us, in space, no one can hear you scream. Very Fine-.
