Dune Vintage Poster

UPDATE (2015): Added one additional piece to keep up with the movie’s 31st anniversary!

Exactly 30 years ago, on December 14 1984, David Lynch‘s Dune premiered nationwide. Even though the industry considers his movie adaptation of Frank Herbert‘s 1965 science fiction novel one of the biggest flops and box office bombs of its time, and despite David Lynch distancing himself from it, there are in fact many fans among the Welcome to Twin Peaks community. From a poll launched a few days ago, we learned that 9 out of 10 of those of you who saw Dune agree it’s actually not that bad. In fact, more than half of you loves the movie!

In case you haven’t voted yet, you can do so below and check the results.

And so the spice must flow. To mark its 30th anniversary (on the day), here are 30 pieces of fan art inspired by the epic world of Dune as created by Frank Herbert and imagined on the big screen by David Lynch. If you like any of these Dune poster designs and illustrations, most of them are available as prints!
