I already own lots of books like these by Carlton Books. As with the others the quality of this book is superb. This book contains 22 removable documents, including, An extract from Le Petit Vingtième where the first Tintin strip appeared, a poster created by Hergé for bookshops when he released The Castafiore Emerald and a scene that didn't make it to the book from Tintin and the Picaros. Other memorabilia included artwork and postcards by Hergé. The quality of this book is excellent. It has a padded cover and the print quality is excellent. The start of the book contains a two page interview with Hergé and the rest of the book covers all the Tintin books in about 3-4 pages each. As with most of these kind of books, there is not too much text but there is a lot of pictures, so if you want a detailed history of Tintin, this book may not be ideal.
The two preview pages that are here on Amazon are not actually in the book.

Overall, I highly recommend this book, the quality is excellent and it makes an interesting read.

As a fan of Tintin from being a child, my boyfriend was really pleased with this book. Lots of pictures, illustrations and old artwork. Well thought out. The price surprised us both, we thought it would cost much more. Only downside, Amazon had to send us 3 copies as the first two book covers arrived damaged. The cover is padded so can easily be damaged. All ended well though as these were returned with no extra cost.

A stunning book with wonderful detail and gorgeous loose-leaf facsimile documents. Bought for my husband who adores the artwork - a real treasure indeed.

Lovely quality book with a fascinating insight into the Tintin books and the influences surrounding them. Additional artwork plates makes this an outstanding gift for any Tintin fan. Purchased on the Black Friday deal making it exceptional value.

Really is an amazing book. I've loved Tintin all my life and have read them over and over countless times. Here's the surprise...right now, you can pick this book up in WH Smiths brand new for £5.
