Reviews - What do customers think about HR Giger (Icons)?

Best Giger For the Budget  Dec 3, 2003
ok, there are indeed some very odd pictures that explore sex, but oh well. this book is a pure work of art, different and grand.
To the last ignorant review  Mar 3, 2003
just because some art explores sex does not mean it is "porn". I love the rampant abundance of ignorance in this country. Giger is an amazing artist, if you have not experienced his work than you are surely missing out on some of the most ORIGINAL artwork of this time.
Fabulous and Fascinating  Jan 29, 2003
Although not for the weak at heart, Giger explores the dark reaches of his soul and shares it to the world through his paintings. From there, one can begin to see the alien born in each of us.
an awesome book  Dec 4, 2002
this is a great way to get introduced to Giger's work. I would recomend The Necronomicon to follow up this book and watch any of the Alien films to see how Giger's work has influenced Hollywood. Its also an extremely good price.
Disappointing and Might Be Offensive to Some People  Oct 16, 2002
After looking at the works featured in this book, I come to the conclusion that Giger is too obssesed with sex in his designs, to the stage of including porn (not art) in his work. Included in this book are sketches and drawings showing his designs are centered around sexual, skeletal, "slender", "bloat", "mechanical screws" themes. At times, I feel the artist is lacking in creativity (Yeah, I know he is a "someone" in the art world).

Even before the section, Gigerotica, there are already pictures of female figures fitted with rubber phallus (pg 48, 49), engaging in sexual union. Other pages which might be "offensive" show group sex, oral sex, self-penetration, etc... Can't help but wonder, "Isn't this more of porn that art". I think it goes beyond erotic art.

If everything in this book can be called art, then I suppose you can include any photo of people having sex called art as well.
