1 Review
The second in a three-volume series, The Art of Herge is a selection of Herge's outstanding, often unpublished drawings showing the diversity of his work and offering the reader a view of the range of his talent. This second volume covers the years 1937 to 1949 - a fascinating period in the artist's career. It marks the maturity of Herge - in 1937 he was only 30, but he had laid down enough markers to lay claim to his future territory, the strip cartoon. It was also during this period that he began to render the adventures of Tintin in colour.
