Riassunto: An exceptional work to celebrate the hundredth anniversary of the birth of Herge. "Tintin is certainly born of my unconscious desire to be perfect, to be a hero." -Herge. Herge was one of the greatest artists of the twentieth century, as almost everyone knows. But most people overlook the fact that he was equally talented with words. Dominique Maricq takes us in the footsteps of this very important artist, with extracts chosen from Herge's correspondence and interviews. There are rare pearls, pieces of an anthology, amusing notes or scathing letters, where the creator of Tintin and Snowy reveals his true self. Georges Remi became Herge early on, but it took Herge much longer to return to simply being Georges. Over the course of many pages, we see both of them -- neither angel, nor beast, nor devil -- through a rich range of reflections, concepts, thoughts and matters, with light humor and good taste, tenderness and gravity, self-assurance and doubt, love and friendship. An original portrait of an artist about whom we still have a lot to learn. Thick, square, lavishly filled with art (color and b&w). Text in French. Hardcover.
