    Barnes and Noble collectors edition

    Postby tenfingersofdoom » 09 Apr 2013 20:03

    last sunday I went to barnes and noble to pick up ONE book when my eyes popped out of my skull and my heart skipped a beat. B&N has finally done a leatherbound classic edition of dune. the fremen on the spine reminded me of the illustrated edition so i began to hope it could be a reprint of that but it isnt. This book is sturdy, printed on thick sheets of paper with an embossed sandscape on the front cover, embossed sandworms on the back and a fremen on the spine. the cover is in gold, black and orange and the pages are gold leafed on the edges. I hope they release all 6 like this. my only real gripe is the font they used: DUNe, I hate that lower-case e.
    Kevin J. Anderson is so stupid he thinks he invented The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen since he wrote the movie tie-in.

    Just an article about the reprint.

    Asking on the Facebook Dune Saga group if they know anything about this, I didnt see any announcement anywhere.

    Thanks for the info:)

    Snagged myself a copy as well as The Foundation Trilogy.

    I doubt we will see the rest of the novels by Frank.

    The endpapers are by John Schoenherr and the embossing makes for a very striking cover.

    It goes well with all of the leather hardcovers B&N puts out and $20 is a damn good price for a quality hardcover.
