Tintin and the World of Hergé: An Illustrated History
This book explores the artist's early life and the influences on his work, focusing on the development of Tintin and his endearing entourage - the blustering Captain Haddock, absent-minded Professor Calculus, bumbling detectives Thomson and Thompson, glamorous Madame Castafiore, and loyal canine Snowy - from their first appearance in the Belgian magazine "Le Petit Vingtieme" in 1929 to the final, incomplete adventure "Tintin and Alpha-Art", which was set to take place in the modern art world. Lavishly illustrated with photographs, sketches, letters, and early comic strips, and full of enlightening historical details and personal anecdotes, this is a rich compendium to be treasured by Tintin fans old and new.
