Description

JOHN SCHOENHERR (American, 1935-2010)
Dune, paperback cover, 1965
Gouache and watercolor on board
15.25 x 11 inches.
Not signed

This is the iconic cover art for the first paperback edition of this classic science-fiction novel by Frank Herbert. "The Duke of Atreides has been maneuvered by his arch enemy, Baron Harkonnen, into administering the desert planet of Dune. Although it is almost completely without water, Dune is a planet of fabulous wealth, for it is the only source of a drug prized throughout the Galactic Empire." A blend of adventure and mysticism, environmentalism and politics, Dune won the first Nebula Award, shared the Hugo Award, and formed the basis of what is undoubtedly one of the grandest epics in science fiction. From the Jerry Weist Collection.
