The best Dune art covers a stunning mix of styles

Frank Herbert's Dune has been inspiring artists since the release of the first of the six novels way back in 1965. The design of Arrakis and the planet's giant sandworms have been interpreted many times, in dozens of book covers, movie posters and video games, sometimes based closely on Herbert's text, and sometimes in more impressionistic interpretations.

With Dune: Part 2 now in cinemas, we celebrate below some of the best Dune art we have seen, from classic covers to more modern interpretations, and yes, even a poster for David Lynch's much maligned take on the saga. For more art and design inspiration from the movies, see our piece on the evolution of Godzilla and the history of the Ghostbusters logo.
