Book 1 of 6 in the Dune Series


Synopsis from CP website


Set on the desert planet Arrakis, Dune is the story of the boy Paul Atreides, heir to a noble family tasked with ruling an inhospitable world where the only thing of value is the “spice” melange, a drug capable of extending life and enhancing consciousness. Coveted across the known universe, melange is a prize worth killing for…
       When House Atreides is betrayed, the destruction of Paul’s family will set the boy on a journey toward a destiny greater than he could ever have imagined. And as he evolves into the mysterious man known as Muad’Dib, he will bring to fruition humankind’s most ancient and unattainable dream.
       A stunning blend of adventure and mysticism, environmentalism and politics, Dune won the first Nebula Award, shared the Hugo Award, and formed the basis of what is undoubtedly the grandest epic in science fiction.
       This edition of Dune features a new introduction by Michael Swanwick, over a dozen new color illustrations by Mark Molnar, along with a new foldout map, a gallery of character portraits, illustrated endpapers, Mylar-wrapped double-sided dustjacket, Nabuka Prestige cloth (unsigned copies are bound in an elegant Japanese black cloth), ribbon marker, top-edge stain, head and tail bands, and an inset image on the front board, all of it enclosed in a custom capped slipcase.
