Description

Product Description

Delve into this exclusive Alien Covenant collection, containing two books, to gain an insight into David''s descent into madness. Packed over two hundred illustrations and an interview with Dane Hallett and Matt Hatton, the artists from the set.

Before Alien Covenant, David was stranded alone on the Engineers'' planet and--left to his own dark devices--he began to push the boundaries of creation. Delve into this exclusive collection, containing two books, to gain an insight into the android''s descent into madness.

The in-universe sketchbook contains over two hundred illustrations from the set and will take you inside the mind of David. It features the complete arc of his journey from the studies of flora and fauna, to his more sinister experiments on creatures, and the disturbing demise of Dr. Elizabeth Shaw. The companion book, Developing the Art of an Android, holds an interview with Dane Hallett and Matt Hatton--the artists behind all of the beautifully grotesque sketches. Alien Covenant: David''s Drawings will satisfy every serious fan''s hunger for details of the most intriguing character from the Alien prequels.

This is a truly wonderful collection for fans of the Alien franchise. Particularly those interested in getting inside the head of android David & witness his slow descent into madness.

First off the packaging is great. The slip cover has a metallic tin-foil shine to it. Inside...two books. One is a paperback that serves as both interview and creative process walkthrough from the 2 artists. The second is a hardcover with page after page of beautiful/disturbing images from David’s experiments throughout his years of isolation on the engineer planet.

This second book also tells a story in itself. As you turn the pages, David’s search for the “Perfect Organism” becomes bolder & bolder. Mixing traits of animals found on the planet, engineers, and eventually Elizabeth Shaw. The artwork here is beautiful and you can tell the artists had HR Giger in mind for a lot of the pieces you will find in this collection. This book actually makes me enjoy the film even more!

The imagery toward the end of the sketchbook is pretty disturbing (and that''s why I bought it) but to my disappointment there wasn''t anything here that I hadn''t already seen online. And as an "artifact" from inside the Alien universe I found it lacking. The idea falls apart when you remember David is a machine and therefore would have no need to keep a journal of his progress, and his writing does not fit what we know of his "voice." It was clearly written by the illustrators, whose talent clearly lies in illustrating. Worse, the accompanying booklet of an interview with the illustrators is riddled with formatting errors and typos, giving the whole thing the impression of a rushed job to make a few extra bucks.

I would have rather borrowed or checked this out from a library but this is such a niche book that if you want to see it you probably have to buy it yourself. For $30, I''m really on the fence as to recommend it. For die-hard Alien fanatics it makes a nice display book, but a casual fan should spend their money elsewhere and just do a quick google search if you''re curious about what happened to Shaw.

Originating from the twisted CPU of the corrupted android named "David", these sketches provide a map the the devolving state of the AWOL bot''s self awareness. These sketches range from the clinically anatomical, to the grotesquely fetishistic and perverse that even the Swiss artist H.R. Giger would appreciate. I thought it was especially interesting how the imagery takes on an "Alien: Resurrection" mutant abomination quality mid-way through the derangement, but unfortunately I thought that the book ended just as it was getting the most interesting. Perhaps I should pick up an H.R. Giger book for a continuation.

It has a fabulous custom shell cover, wonderful book cover and the contents are amazing. While there are some
movie franchises that are flooded with collectibles the Alien franchise is not. Great collectible finds are not readily available. The artwork is amazing and it is just superior quality all around. I can highly recommend it for a
serious fan.

I bought this last year and it’s still like new (even has the new smell, which is very strong; so if that’s something you don’t like, I would say hold off. It definitely has to be aired out). Absolutely adore it. I use it as decor on a shelf dedicated to my most important movie/game props. The black book that comes with it is such a treat and I learned some things I didn’t know (definitely cleared up some unanswered questions, too!). The only thing I wish was that the words/pictures in the actual journal weren’t printed on. It would have felt more personal if it was actually drawn the the pages had texture. Other than that, absolutely amazing and would recommend to any Alien fan.

It''s a perfect item for collection, but it''s not a perfect art-book.

The case looks great. The interview is interesting to read. The book''s cover made me feel like I hold a real diary in my hands. I don''t even mind the way the drawings cross each other. It reminds me of pieces of paper forgotten between pages of a book. The only downside is that some drawings appear more than once (male engineer and mutated infant, for example) and some text doesn''t match the drawings (the text from the first pages appears again in the correct place near the mutated infant, the text about asymmetry of a horned worm appears again near an engineer''s arm, etc.).

But still, it''s a good purchase for every fan of ''Alien'' who likes quality books.

This anatomy book is an excellent tie-in to the franchise to see how the species evolved from the genesis. You have David''s morbid creativity at your fingertips!

This book set is a work of art in itself. It is nicely presented in a hard embossed slip case and the main books hand made tactile stock for the main pages of ''David''s drawings'', adds to the artistic pencil medium from one page to the next. I find it engrossing to look at, with each page drawing you in to the detail and hand written snippets of notes around each study shown. A great addition to my ever expanding library/book collection at a great price for what it is. Very happy, Highly recommended.

This two-book collection is a wonderfully presented insight into the mind of David and the renderings he has produced during various surgical explorations and other investigative work. The hardback book that features the collection of his drawings is bound in a black, embossed, leathery material and really creates an impression of quality when held in the hand. Many of the highly detailed drawings inside are, of course, every bit as grim as one would hope they would be and triggered within me some rather bleak and desolate thoughts regarding our species. Disturbing is the most apt word I can summon to convey my impression of the contents. The accompanying softback book provides a supremely detailed account of the concept artists'' intentions, creative processes and other areas of interest for those who appreciate the drawings and the film. Overall this is an extremely worthy addition to the collection of fans of Alien Covenant and other films in the series and should also appeal to those with a penchant for the macabre. Highly recommended!

Hi, this publication is a representation of the drawings that David has hung on the walls of his dwelling when the crew of the Covenant arrive at the Engineer''s home world. They feature in gruesome detail the level of torture and vivisection that Elizabeth Shaw was subjected to by David''s hand, plus the ideas David experimented with, with the bio-matter that was left over. It is pretty macabre stuff but given the unusual nature of this product it is worth a purchase. There is also a full-colour book accompanying the collection which takes you behind the scenes in the make-up and design part of the production. Both books come in a hard cardboard slipcase. Lets just hope that the final sequel Alien Awakening is put into production enabling Ridley Scott to complete the film saga that dovetails into the original movie.

Wonderful book, and a ''must have'' for fans of the Alien franchise! Two books contained within the box-folder: One paperback exploring ''behind the scenes'' of the Alien Covenant film, and one gloriously illustrated hardback containing drawings and annotations by the synthetic David during his experimental studies of the anatomy and development of the xenomorphs. Anyone ''background watching'' during the Alien Covenant movie will have seen many of these drawings pinned to the walls of David''s ''laboratory'' - now you can view them at leisure in one place. Love it! : )
