This luxurious edition ofÂ les aventures de Tintin Reporter chez les SovietsÂ is something you will treasure. Its cover evokes the adventurous spirit HergÃ© instilled in his brave character, Tintin. The end papers are that inky blue, and unlike the normal edition the pages are heavy art paper, which gives a luminosity to the new colour drawings. TheÂ BOUMÂ and theÂ CRACÂ on pages 8 and 9 explode on the page.
The use of this palette of colours highlights the way HergÃ© beautifully balanced each frame, pages 8 and 9 illustrate this. The colour choice is reminiscent of Benjamin Rabier and suits the original drawings of HergÃ©.
First published in 1929, the newspaperÂ Petit VingtiÃ¨meÂ sends its cub reporter, Tintin, on his first story to the USSR. Here he discovers the other side of the communist âParadiseâ and escapes the traps set by the secret police.
