WHAT MAKES THIS LIMITED EDITION SO SPECIAL. Printed throughout in black and gold ink on FSC certified paper, sourced from responsibly managed forests, this beautifully appointed limited edition is a treasure-trove of exceptional bookmaking techniques and materials. Each of the 500 copies includes a limitation tip, printed on Sirio paper and featuring a chapter-head illustration, signed and numbered by Sam Weber. Weber has also reinvented the original binding design as a spectacular new frontispiece and imagined a striking motif for the endpapers; an intricate pattern that evokes the repetitive complexity in the book and represents the multiple futures navigated by Paul in the spice trance with stars to reference space and the universe.
His work is also present on the blocked cloth binding, which features an atmospheric illustration of Paul. Finally, Weber has redrawn the stunning map to include an image of the protagonist. The edition is housed in a beautifully designed, central opening, clamshell presentation box with a magnet closure.
Covered in cloth and printed and blocked in black and gold, it features the Reverend Mother with the box into which Paul must put his hand. As you open the presentation box, so the box in the image opens too. Our designers, in collaboration with the artist, really have thought of everything. Smudge in photos is from (stupid) camera, not in book. The item "DUNEFrank HerbertSam Weber, illus.
