This is a review of the excellent 2019 mass-market hardcover from Ace. Unfortunately it is glued not smyth-sewn, but I knew that before purchase after doing research, which took a long time comparing all extant hardcovers in print. It would be great if Amazon included binding details in the book profile. That said, the pages open nicely, so the perfect binding is not overly tight. I bought this edition for the beautiful design and in person it really is impressive. The illustrations and text typesetting are gorgeous, and the page margins are spot-on. By the way, I saw that the Folio Society DUNE has huge page margins...a turn-off for me.
Book Depository shipped the Ace DUNE to me without inside protection, but luckily it arrived undamaged. I am now looking forward to reading DUNE in 2020 for this first time.
