Dune (Limited Edition)

Frank Herbert

Illustrated and signed by Sam Weber

Essays by Michael Dirda and Brian Herbert

Frank Herbert’s phenomenal tale of far-future desert warriors, fallible messiahs and interplanetary intrigue is newly crafted as a magnificent limited edition. Signed by Sam Weber, and encased in a spectacular presentation box, only 500 hand-numbered copies of Dune will ever be made.

An epic adventure of political subterfuge and messianic deliverance, Dune has become the best-selling science-fiction novel of all time, and is considered by many to be the genre’s greatest work. This exceptionally crafted new limited edition is a celebration of the novel’s 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 Herbert’s 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 humanity’s 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.

Marvel: The Golden Age 1939-1949

In celebration of the 80th anniversary of Marvel Comics #1, The Folio Society has joined legendary Marvel editor Roy Thomas to form a super-powered team-up of their own. Marvel: The Golden Age 1939–1949 presents five specially curated comic books, including a meticulous facsimile of the comic that started it all back in 1939.

Thomas’s selection includes Sub-Mariner #1, Human Torch #5, Captain America Comics #10, and All Winners Comics #19, and showcases the founding characters, debut appearances, famous battles and signature talent that helped define the Golden Age of American Super Hero comics. To recapture and preserve the spirit of the Golden Age, The Folio Society has scanned these comics from original newsprint titles, valuable rarities sourced from either the Marvel vaults or a discerning collector.

While Folio has ensured that the authentic facsimile of Marvel Comics #1 maintains its original dimensions, the four titles collected in hardback have all been enlarged to a treasury format to best appreciate each detail. Every minute aspect of all five books has been preserved, from crinkles and creases in the grainy newsprint to the vintage adverts and short fiction. Even glitches, including original spelling errors and colouring overlaps, have been preserved
