The adventures of Hergé, creator of Tintin by Michael Farr( Book )

15 editions published between 2007 and 2009 in 3 languages and held by 395 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A hundred years after his birth, Georges Remi, better known as Herge, is celebrated for creating Tintin, the dauntless young reporter-hero of the strip cartoon first introduced in 1929. Generously illustrated, this book examines the life and passions of a man who, despite his international fame, preferred to avoid the limelight, finding inspiration in modern art, the latest scientific developments and world affairs, and seeking enlightenment in Zen Buddhism and philosophy. It considers his role as the European pioneer of the strip cartoon and establishes the role played by contemporary cinema in his development, from the slapstick of the 1920s, through the drama and suspense of the Hitchcock thrillers, to the early works of Steven Spielberg--the one filmmaker he believed could successfully bring Tintin to the large screen. The book also covers his work as graphic designer and typographer as well as his less successful aspirations to become an abstract painter.--From publisher description

Tintin : Hergé's masterpiece by Pierre Sterckx( Book )

2 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 106 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The definitive monograph on the art of Tintin. Since he first appeared in Herge's weekly cartoon strip in Le Petit Vingtieme in Brussels in 1929, Tintin has become one of the most celebrated characters in the comic world. With more than 200 million copies of the famous twenty-four "albums" sold worldwide, Herge's iconic hero has exploded genres and expectations, bringing readers of all ages to his stories for their unique mixture of artistry, history, and adventure. Drawing on the archives of the Herge Museum in Brussels, this book looks at the evolution of Herge's artwork, from the simplicity of the early newspaper strips to the sophisticated graphic work of the later books. An avid art collector, Herge was inspired by Old Masters but infatuated with graphic design and modern art, from the Constructivist work he studied in his youth to the Lichtensteins and Miros he would travel to see in his maturity. Written by the Belgian art critic Pierre Sterckx--and translated by the British expert on Tintin, Michael Farr--this is the definitive book on the art of Tintin. With rarely seen pencil sketches, character drawings, and watercolors alongside original artwork from the finished stories, the book illuminates Tintin's progress from whimsical caricature to profound icon and reveals Herge's parallel development from cartoonist to artist

The art of Hergé : inventor of Tintin by Philippe Goddin( Book )

2 editions published between 2009 and 2011 in English and held by 23 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The second 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 of which was Tintin, but which also included much other work. This second volume of The Art of Herge covers the years 1937 to 1945. The period illustrated in this volume is fascinating on a number of counts. It marks the maturity of Hergé, the creator and artist. In 1937 Hergé was only 30, but he had already laid down enough markers to lay claim to his future territory - the strip cartoon. It was during this period that he began to render the Adventures of Tintin in color. The period covered in this volume was also marked by the national and international political tensions, and mounting dangers, that boiled over into the Second World War. 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."--Publisher's description
