From the Publisher
A must for any Tintin fan, this is both the official exhibition catalogue and a celebration of 75 years of the irrepressible boy reporter. From his first appearance in January 1929, the globe-trotting Tintin took to boats in his pursuit of adventure. Motor-launches and liners, cargo vessels and historic galleons: each is meticulously depicted by Hergé, who laboured over every detail.
A new dimension, punctuated with a staggering repertoire of salty swear words - 'billions of blistering barnacles!' - came in 1940 with the introduction of Captain Haddock. From then on, with this loyal, whisky-loving companion, Tintin could hardly be a landlubber.
