More hype than anything else
October 24, 2021

The book’s level of depth and exploration of the film’s set design is brief. Its less about art and more brief biographies on each of the characters. Save your money and just go online to find more in-depth exploration of the artwork and design that went into the film.

Not a Dud, but Disappointing
October 24, 2021

For those who recall director Villeneuve’s “The Arrival” or “Blade Runner 2049,” his new version of “Dune” looks very familiar. Whereas the former was foggy, the latter smoggy, his Dune is a sandstorm of sepia-toned half-hewn shapes. It looks as if a black and white film were immersed in tea. His world building can’t be considered a success since there’s a sameness of tone; it’s hard to distinguish between his worlds and civilizations.

There are a few holdovers from David Lynch’s failed Dune effort; the huge Guild Highliner is again a big cannoli. The fremen are familiar too. The rest seems recycled from Villeneuve’s earlier efforts. Spacecraft look like repurposed potatoes, or a discarded brick. The spacecraft from “The Arrival” seems to have stopped by. Brutalist architecture abounds – just as it had in “Blade Runner 2049.” Dull aesthetics aside, the problem is that Villeneuve’s worlds don’t look lived in; they look stark, with no clutter or disorder.

As long as epic cinematic battles occur – with vast armies engaging in hand-to-hand combat – wise directors would be advised to strongly distinguish between them. Yes, I am griping about Peter Jackson’s “Lord of the Rings” films. Even a difference in albedo would be nice; that is, one side wears shinier stuff than the other. Dune’s combatants wear undistinguished and all too similar spacesuits/armor.

Frank Herbert’s son, Brian Herbert, is the official keeper of the Dune flame, and an advisor to Villeneuve’s film. That is another problem; whereas the father created a computer-less civilization in order to emphasize the use of human beings as the ultimate tool and weapon, his son is a technologist. Why would the combatants wear armor when they wear personal shields? Perhaps this is why no Dune effort on film or television ever mastered the image of the dreaded Sardaukar. Their toughness and training distinguished them, not their equipment.

Many Dune fans might be disappointed by this film’s ornithopters. The ornith- prefix means “bird.” Actual ornithopters have wings which copy aspects of bird wings. Villeneuve’s flyers are based on dragonflies. Insectothopters, anyone?

We shouldn’t treat Villeneuve too unkindly; at least this is an earnest, understated Dune effort. So understated that it’s bland. The only powerful image is the typography of Dune itself. It consists of only four crescent shapes, but is dynamic. If only the film’s design were equally effective.

Incredible Resource

The production value is amazing, from the page quality to slip case. As a lover of all art books and behind the scenes information, this is a perfect combination of the beauty of the film with the creative process that brought it to light.

The insight into Denis Villineuve’s role was also great to read, as he is my favorite director. After setting this down I immediately looked for other collaborations with Tanya Lapointe and was pleased to find they have a book on Arrival releasing next year. Can’t wait to pick more of these up.

Wow! This book is much more than I hoped for.

Beautiful. So much inside for fans of Dune. Can’t wait to read it front to back.


As exciting as the movie.
October 23, 2021

Purchased this book more than a year ago. Between it’s arrival and the release of the movie, it’s like Christmas came early. The book is magnificent. A true behind the scenes look a cinematic work of art. Bravo!

Beautiful Art Book!
October 27, 2021

It’s beautiful from start to finish, it’s like a dessert to eat after watching the movie. The reading experience is enhanced by pairing it with the soundtrack that Hans Zimmer made exclusively for the book. Thank you very much, it is the book that I always wanted to have about Dune.


Well done.

Well done. Could have been better though. There are scant few images of development sketches, which are the best type to view. I can’t understand ‘why’ it is that only game-art books include scads of development artwork whilst movie-art books always skimp. I would have preferred hardcover, as my copy arrived with one of the corners somewhat crunched. The imagery that the book DOES include IS in fact quite nice. So if you are Dune fan you will be pleased.

Great concept art
February 22, 2022

This is one of the best books of this kind that I have ever bought. I own several concept art books and this one gives you so much material and windows into why they made things the way they did.

Exceptional Visual Document
Reviewed in the United Kingdom on October 22, 2021

I’ve just received this book and it’s absolutely beautiful! Compared to LaPointe’s equivalent book on Blade Runner 2049, this one both fits easier on the shelf and is packed with more pictures.

Books like these are invaluable as documents of the whole process. So many wonderful artists have dreamed of Arrakis and their dreams are on display in this great volume. It’s a very inspirational thing to leaf through, with a good variety of concept art for locations, vehicles, costumes and more, from a number of artists.
My one gripe – the same one I’d say about the BR2049 one actually – is that there isn’t the same level of detail in the text as you’d find in the superlative Making Of books by the late J W Rinzler. When it comes to these books, more is more! But that aside, I’m very glad I have this, so i can go and visit Arrakis whenever I want. Stunning stuff.

Stunning companion
Reviewed in the United Kingdom on October 22, 2021

We saw the film last night and this arrived conveniently this afternoon. I loved the Blade Runner 2049 book but this is even more luxurious. Slightly more compact, with an exquisite slipcase featuring the sand worm mural, the book itself is beautifully produced. The stunning visual quality of the film deserves a companion to both remind you and enlighten you on how the process was achieved. So far, about three chapters in, this achieves that remarkably well.

I love this book soooo much
Reviewed in the United Kingdom on January 14, 2022

As a life long fan of the novel (my GOAT) and a believer that the movie is one of the greatest ever made, I am totally delighted by this book. It is immaculately presented eg. it comes in a cardboard sleeve that you don’t see on the product images and the printing has produced texture on the pages.

There is A LOT of information in this book, not just about the art, but background on the characters, story, settings etc. Whereas Lapointe’s previous move art books are more dip in and out types with just a little text (eg. Blade Runner 2049), this one I really feel like I can sit down and read it for a while, whilst also enjoying the fabulous artwork.

A book just as stunning as the movie
Reviewed in the United Kingdom on October 26, 2021

Having seen part 1 on the day or release I waited for the arrival of the book and I’ve certainly not been disappointed. From the beautiful slip case to the book and contents it’s a loving companion to the film

How do you follow up the movie of the year? You produce the art of… book of the year. From cover to cover to everything in between, the quality of this neatly sized book is crammed with beautiful concept art and stills from the movie itself all printed on high quality paper.
If you bought The Art and Soul of BR2049 and enjoyed it, this is better.
In fact these books are so good that I’m going to order Art and Science of Arrival.
