This year we celebrate the 50th anniversary of the novel Dune. I’ve been following the remembrances the book is getting in the form of online articles and new releases, and I wanted to share a couple of recent favorite discoveries connected to Dune‘s half-century birthday.
The Folio Society has released a gorgeous version of Dune complete with a slipcase and gorgeous illustrations. This post’s title image is from the book.

Of course, talk of the Dune book automatically reminds me of the Dune movie/movies and I’ve been trolling YouTube watching lots of docs/interviews/retrospectives about the David Lynch film of the story. Here’s a cool remembrance featuring movie critics that gave the movie positive reviews despite the general skewering Lynch and his movie received upon its initial release.
