Review quote

"This 500-page, illustrated coffee-table book was designed to be a museum on paper, and perusing it is akin to visiting the Musee Herge in Louvain-la-Neuve southeast of Brussels." -- France-Amerique "Tintin: The Art of Herge is a remarkable sampling of published and unpublished pieces culled from the museum's extensive collection... This beautiful gallery on paper celebrates the life and works of the popular Belgian cartoonist Herge." -- Shelf Awareness for Readers "this beautiful tribute to one of the giants of 20th-century sequential art will enthrall Tintin fans and readers interested in the graphic medium." -- Library Journal online
