From the back cover of the first edition (1984):
Bringing DUNE to the screen was one of the greatest undertakings in film history. This book reveals the fascinating story of the giant project, from its beginnings in the early 1970s to the magnificent spectacle we see today.
Here are the inside facts and fascinating details in the worlds of the people who made DUNE happen: the producer, Raffaella de Laurentis; the young director, David Lynch, fresh from the success of The Elephant Man; the design crew that created the alien landscapes of the four worlds of DUNE in Mexico; the special effects wizards who brought to life the colossal sandworms of DUNE; the international cast including Max von Sydow, Jurgen Prochnow, Francesca Annis, Kenneth McMillan, and rock superstar Sting.
Ed Naha is a reporter who knows the film business firsthand. A DUNE fan himself, and a seasoned columnist for the New York Post, he visited the top-secret DUNE set many times, working on location to create what he calls "the first making-of book to be as filled with surprises as the film itself!"
