About the Author
Hergé (Georges Remi) was born in Brussels in 1907. Over the course of 54 years he completed 23 albums of The Adventures of Tintin series, which is now considered to be one of the greatest, if not the greatest, comics series of all time. With translations published in over 80 languages, more than 230 million copies sold worldwide and a Hollywood movie to its name, Tintin dominates the Comics and Graphic Novels chart even today. Sadly, Hergé died in 1983, leaving his 24th album, Tintin and Alph-Art, unfinished, but his hero continues to be one of the most iconic characters in both adult and children’s fiction.--This text refers to an alternate Hardcover edition.

If this is the first facsimile that you buy in the Tintin series (and almost all the original albums are now available, all in French) you will find that the paper has a matte finish and the colours more muted. Most readers agree that the books look better this way than the rather gaudy, primary-colour versions of the 1960s and 1970s that are reproduced with English text. That said, if you already own the books in English and are more comfortable reading them in that language then artistic considerations are probably not enough to justify rebuying the set in the numerous historical editions.
If, however, you are tempted to experience Tintin as it was first published, then I'd heartily suggest that you start here. It's a beautifully produced book, you get extra pages (including around twelve pages that close the first half of the story, published as The Seven Crystal Balls), and those with more advanced French can even read the boxout sections on the Incas that were added late in the story.
Colours are more subdued than the later standard book.
Superb, as it was originally presented - and intended.
