The Book of Alien is the definitive companion to the classic movie, taking you right behind the scenes of the production, including interviews with legendary designer HR Giger and director Ridley Scott. Lavishly illustrated with scores of stunning stills and pieces of production art unpublished elsewhere, the book graphically demonstrates just why the movie won an Oscar for its visual effects.
