I just got the Dune Hardcover Deluxe edition in the mail today, and this may be the most beautiful hardcover I own. The dust jacket has a soft matte feel to it. The inside front and back covers both have unique and amazing paintings. The pages are blue tipped. I had originally purchased this book to read, but I'm having second thoughts and may just re-read my dog-eared paperback that I bought 20 years ago. I paid $28 for this deluxe hardcover edition and I believe it is well worth it.
Of course, the story itself is 5 stars all the way.
