Herge and the Treasures of Tintin

London: Goodman, 2013.
Hardcover.

Presumed First Edition. From his first appearance in the newspaper supplement Le Petit Vingtieme in Belgium, Tintin has travelled the globe – from Scotland to Tibet and from Russia to South America – and even ventured into space, foiling criminals and searching for treasure. Dominique Maricq, archivist at the Studios Herge and an expert on Tintin, explores the background behind the stories – the world events that sparked the ideas, the people who influenced Herge’s characterizations and the way in which the artist researched and studied places and objects to bring authenticity to his drawings. With illustrations from Herge’s personal archives, including 22 removable documents – among them original studies by Herge, an extract from the edition of Le Petit Vingtieme in which Tintin first appeared, rare artworks, and sketches for cover designs.
