Flametree designer, Hugh, has been spending his downtime reading the 1965 novel Dune. Hugh said, “I’ve been re-reading Frank Herbert’s sci-fi epic Dune in anticipation of director Denis Villeneuve's film adaptation due out later this year (who recently made the excellent Blade Runner 2049). It’s truly a landmark work of science fiction and its influences on other fictional works are far reaching.
"The world building narrative is incredibly rich and has kept me absorbed during the COVID19 shut-down. Not only is it an iconic work of fiction, but provides salient commentary of ecological and cultural themes even more relevant today than when Dune was first published in 1965.”
