    The first in a three-volume series, this is a selection of Herge's outstanding, often unpublished, drawings showing the diversity of his work and offering the reader a view of the range of his talent.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 ofwhich was Tintin, but which also included much other work. This first volume of The Art of Herge covers the years 1907 to 1937, and his development as a young, promising artist; it covers: his childhood and schoolboy sketches, first published drawings, his burgeoning work as an illustrator and graphic designer, ads, the occasional painting, and, of course, his comics. 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.

    Philippe Goddin was born in 1944. Hie is considered to be one of the top experts on Herge's life and oeuvre. he has been studying Herge's art for more than 30 years, and has published several books on the subject. He was lucky enough to know Herge and to be acquainted with many of his friends and colleagues. Most of the documents produced in this series come from the Studios Herge where Philippe Goddin directed the research and archives for more than 10 years.

    'Herg' was born Georges Remi on 22 May, 1907 in Etterbeek, a suburb of Brussels, in Belgium. After leaving school, he worked for the daily newspaper, Le XXe Sicle (The 20th Century). He was responsibe the for the section of the newspaper designed for children. Tintin, the main character in his works, was introduced on January 10, 1929 in a story entitled 'Tintin in the Land of the Soviets.' Each story ran as a comic strip in the newspaper and then was published as a book. Some of these books were adapted for the small screen including The Crab With The Golden Claws, Star of Mystery, Red Rakham's Treasure, Black Island, Objective Moon and The Calculus Affair. French TV produced longer versions of twenty of the books in 1992, which have been broadcast in over fifty countries. On 3 March, 1983, he died in Brussels. At the time of his death, he was working on Tintin and the Alpha-Art, which was published in an unfinished form.
