About this deal

Debbie’s chart-topping success, fearless spirit and rare longevity - including more than 50 million albums sold worldwide and acclaimed solo projects - have cemented her as a vibrant global force and a shaper of pop culture. Recently,” he added, “I’ve been trying acupuncture, hence the needles as well as the ‘punk’ with the word acupuncture. His strange, enigmatic artworks are a combination of industrial stylistics and apocalyptic vision of the future.

Instead the com­mer­cial flatlin­ing of the album threw Har­ry off-track, while Giger went on to be the go-to album artist for met­al and punk bands, from the Dead Kennedys to Blood­bath.

She now has over 30 film and television roles to her credit, including "Union City" (1980), "Videodrome (1983)", "Hairspray" (1988), "Body Bags" (1993), and "Heavy" (1995).

After attending college, she worked various jobs—as a dancer, a Playboy Bunny and a secretary (including at the BBC in New York)—before her breakthrough in the music industry. As a vibrant global force and a shaper of pop culture, Debbie’s chart-topping success, fearless spirit and rare longevity led to an induction into the Rock ‘N’ Roll Hall of Fame for Blondie in 2006.

Blondie reunited in the late 1990s, releasing No Exit (1999), followed by The Curse of Blondie (2003). Harry’s once sunshine-esque look is far gone, replaced by a genuinely gothic, almost horrifying aesthetic. He has also collaborated with artists including Andy Warhol, Jean-Michel Basquiat, William Burroughs and Devo.

More recently, in October of 2019, Debbie became a best selling author with the release of her memoir, FACE IT. The music itself is a far cry from the visual design choices of Giger, which will have ultimately been given the nod by Harry and her team.And Chris Stein provides a new look at it from the perspective of two Americans living with Giger there for a few weeks in 1980. The stories behind the collaboration are really cool and it’s finely printed to capture the richness and subtle details of Giger/Stein’s compositions. Dismissed for decades by the mainstream art scene for Giger’s popular status in Hollywood, Alien indeed made Giger famous just as Giger made Alien famous. A beautiful coffee table signed limited edition art book chronicling the extraordinary collaboration between Debbie Harry and H.
