Keeping To An Arts Theme,

both Diana and myself,

 were amazed at the number of souvenir shops selling Tintin mechanise in both Cambodia and Vietnam,

I even bought a couple of Tintin T shirts myself, but for UK fans of Hergé and Tintin the good news is that this winter, Somerset House will present TINTIN: Hergé’s Masterpiece, drawing on the archives of the Hergé Museum in Belgium, TINTIN: Hergé’s Masterpiece will feature pencil sketches, character drawings, and watercolours alongside original artwork from the finished stories, 

as well as models/installations of memorable locations such as Tintin’s apartment will be displayed and the exhibition will be themed with reference to one of Hergé’s favourite backdrops - Marlinspike Hall, since he first appeared in Hergé's weekly cartoon strip in Le Petit Vingtième in Brussels in 1929, Tintin has become one of the most iconic comic-strip heroes along with a supporting cast of his trusty dog Snowy, Captain Haddock, Professor Calculus, and Thomson and Thompson, with more than 200 million copies of the famous 24 ‘albums’ sold worldwide, he has plenty of fans, so for all of you Tintin fans out there now is the chance to catch up with your favourite character, enjoy.
