Since Tintin first appeared in 1929, he has captivated generations of children and adults alike. Millions followed Tintin's journeys from the wilds of the Congo to the streets of Prague, Moscow and New York. Tintin: The Art of Herge offers new insight into this iconic character, with incredible access to original sources from the Herge Museum in Belgium. Designed by Christian de Portzamparc, the Herge Museum opened in 2009 to celebrate Tintin creator Georges Remi, later known as Herge. The museum features hundreds of original plates, photographs and documents displaying the work and inspiration of the famed comic artist. Illustrated by images of this unparalleled collection, Tintin: The Art of Herge provides a rare glimpse into Tintin and Herge's world. Previously unpublished drawings depict how the beloved characters were created and offer fresh insight into the stories of all twenty-two Tintin books.
