Default Giger Alien reference

Anyone got any links to decent reference material? I've spent ages looking but I haven't found anything really useful, despite there being hundreds of thousands of links. I had a book but it appears to have grown legs, as books in studios often do. Anyway, the problem is that the pic he has found is awful and I'm sure there were more sites available a couple of years ago than recently, or maybe senility is approaching faster than I thought it was

Yeah I got the same book as halftone, only cost me about four or five squid and its got most of his works in there. Think I got it someplace like 'the works' if I remember rightly. Try searching for the obvious biomechanoids etc and you usually get a good load of Giger work. art websites are alright too, usually listed under futurism/surrealism/fantasy

(google image search is always easiest if you havent tried already)

Um, apart from that, all I can do is call the alien down here myself...
