This is a 1st printing. A hefty volume which weighs almost 4.5kg when packed.
Seems to me unique among SF novels in the depth of characterisation and the extraordinary detail of the world it creates. I know nothing comparable to it except. The Lord of the Rin. An epic adventure of political subterfuge and messianic deliverance. This exceptionally crafted new limited edition is a celebration of the novels literary magnitude and will be treasured by collectors for a lifetime.
Limited to just 500 hand-numbered and signed copies, the lavishly illustrated edition is accompanied by a print and commentary volume, and is housed in a beautiful cloth-bound presentation box. The extraordinary treatment befits Frank Herberts epic story, which is played out on Arrakis, or Dune a planet of nothingness, its torched wastelands home to a fierce nomadic people who stalk gargantuan sandworms the size of starships. It is a place where water is sacred and where to shed a tear is the most taboo of all sacrifices. And yet the planet is also humanitys sole source of spice, the mysterious, addictive substance that underpins the workings of the galaxy-wide Padishah Empire.To control Arrakis is to control all.
