Please note: Due to unprecedented demand, the first printing of The Art and Soul of Dune: Limited Edition has sold out. Fortunately, we were able to secure additional copies signed by director Denis Villeneuve, author and executive producer Tanya Lapointe, star Josh Brolin, and director of photography Greig Fraser. These are limited to only 500 copies and will be the only other copies produced of this one-of-a-kind collector’s edition. These copies will ship in early December 2021, in time for the holidays.

Director Denis Villeneuve (Blade Runner 2049, Arrival) will once more display his science fiction mastery when his much-anticipated adaptation of Frank Herbert’s Dune releases in late 2021 courtesy of Legendary Entertainment and Warner Bros..

Insight Editions has partnered with Dune’s executive producer Tanya Lapointe to share an insider's look at how Villeneuve and his team successfully adapted a legendary novel long thought unfilmable.

To celebrate this achievement, Insight Editions is offering a lavish Limited Edition version of The Art and Soul of Dune, written by Lapointe, exclusively available at www.insighteditions.com. Created with the same passion and exacting detail as Villeneuve’s hugely anticipated film, The Art and Soul of Dune: Limited Edition includes a variety of exclusive items personally crafted and overseen by the cast and crew.

● A Limited Edition version of The Art and Soul of Dune, featuring an exclusive cloth cover with ornate, foil-stamped Atreides and Harkonnen symbols.

● An exclusive companion volume titled simply Dune, featuring the candid and intimate on-set photography of Oscar-nominated director of photography Greig Fraser, accompanied by Josh Brolin’s personal perspective and recollections of the production. This volume, designed, custom printed, and hand bound with a variety of fine Japanese papers, provides an authentic and tactile experience that reflects the aesthetics of the film.

● A signed and numbered signature card individually inscribed by director Denis Villeneuve, author and executive producer Tanya Lapointe, star Josh Brolin, and director of photography Greig Fraser. (Note: The first printing signature card included star Timothée Chalamet.)

● A unique, cloth-bound reproduction of the Fremkit instruction booklet prop created for the movie, featuring 80 pages of exclusive unseen art from the film.

● Packaged in an elaborate deluxe clamshell case wrapped in saifu cloth featuring copper-stamped bespoke imagery based on the Bene Gesserit designs created for the movie.

This stunning and rare Limited Edition version of The Art and Soul of Dune is a worthy tribute to the craft and creativity of Dune’s cast and crew and will forever honor their achievement. Order your copy today, exclusively at Dune LE Final

These used to be limited to 700 copies and include 5 signatures: Denis Villeneuve, Timothee Chalamet, Tanya Lapointe, Josh Brolin, and director of photography Greig Fraser. They took about 2 months to sell out and then they "just decided" to print 500 more, without the signature of Timothee Chalamet this time, probably because he didn't want to sign another 500 copies.
So they essentially doubled the print run due to "unprecedented demand", but again, they took 2 months to sell out for a product which is this awesome on paper (not in price). But actually, before the first run sold out, Josh Brolin posted an instagram story of him signing the new copies, making me think that they probably knew all along they were going to do 1300 and just market the first print run as 700.
It sounds very nit picky, but I hate when companies do things like that. I actually had a copy on pre-order and cancelled it as soon as they announced the new copies, it just felt like having been lied to or something when they advertise it with a specific number, double down on it in marketing and then just say F it.
And in the end it actually is one hell of a price tag.
But still, the film is a masterpiece and deserves an edition like this, 200 bucks cheaper would be cool though.
