    Late ’70s, early ’80s covers for Frank Herbert’s Dune series. Cover art by Bruce Pennington. Books published by New English Library Books.

    There are a ton of different editions of the Dune series, as you can see on arrakis.co.uk. I really like the Hebrew and Brazilian editions, but my favorites are four UK covers illustrated by Bruce Pennington.

    The titles of the books are set in Giorgio. Giorgio is like a psycedelic slab serif. The tagline text has been set in Monotype Grotesque.

    Below are dozens of different versions of Dune. The type has been set in so many different ways. Titles can be seen set in a yet unidentified typeface (or is it lettering?) digitized as Orthodox Herbertarian, Desdemona aka Quaint, Revue, Rubens, Plantin, Alpha Midnight, Avant Garde Gothic, Kabel Black, Albertus, Engravers, Trajan, Techno and many more.
