There Was Actually a #Dune Coloring Book

David Lynch’s 1984 release of Dune had some interesting marketing associated with it – like a series of activity books. Yes, you could actually buy Dune coloring books and add your own spin to scenes like Paul Atreides sticking his hand in the Gom Jabbar. It’s just the kind of image every kid wants to color! Beyond coloring pages, there were activities like weighing Baron Harkonnen, following the dots to create images, dressing up paper dolls, and making No Bake Spice Cookies. Eating those cookies probably won’t result in a case of glowing blue eyes.

Here are some of the best pages.

These activity books are so fun and bizarre that I’m tempted to track them down on eBay. If you can’t get enough of the pages, a Google search turns up several more of the Dune activity book pages.
