The Art of Hergé, Inventor of Tintin: 1907-1937
The first in a three-volume series, this is a selection of Herge's outstanding, often unpublished, drawings showing the diversity of his work and offering the reader a view of the range of his talent. Georges Remi, better known as Herge, the creator of Tintin & Snowy, was born a century ago. He left an exceptional legacy, the center ofwhich was Tintin, but which also included much other work. This first volume of The Art of Herge covers the years 1907 to 1937, and his development as a young, promising artist; it covers: his childhood and schoolboy sketches, first published drawings, his burgeoning work as an illustrator and graphic designer, ads, the occasional painting, and, of course, his comics. From his childhood onwards, Herge produced a vast number of drawings, and these are all presented in chronological order, with many high quality reproductions, all accompanied by concise commentary, allowing us a closer look into the artist's daily routine, and by extension, his thoughts.
