  About The Book

With Herge's centennary upon us in 2007, we are now releasing these three previously unreleased titles. We believe they will be a big hit with avid Tintin fans who have been searching for these titles overseas to complete their collections.

Tintin and Alph-Art is the final book in the Tintin series and was published posthumously, despite being unfinished. This story is drastically different from the rest of the series, taking Tintin into the world of modern art. (Note: this particular title is one of three original unpublished in the U.S., as it does not contain a complete Tintin adventure. Instead, Alph-Art is a series of sketches, text and rediscovered pages that shed light on Herge's creative process.)



Hergé, one of the most famous Belgians in the world, was a comics writer and artist. The internationally successful Adventures of Tintin are his most well-known and beloved works. They have been translated into 38 different languages and have inspired such legends as Andy Warhol and Roy Lichtenstein. He wrote and illustrated for The Adventures of Tintin until his death in 1983.
