Directors Sir Peter Jackson and Steven Spielberg have written the forewords to a new book on the art of The Adventures of Tintin. The book will accompany a new film made by the two directors, The Adventures of Tintin, due for release next week in Britain. Oscar winners Joe Letteri and Richard Taylor also share their insights into making the film in the book. The art has been created by NZ Weta artists (and if you plan on buying it before seeing the movie, be aware that it does contain spoilers!).
Moulinsart, the official organisation that looks after the world of Tintin, has contributed an introductory chapter on the comic's creator Georges Remi, aka Hergé. The book, The Art of The Adventures of Tintin, is to be released in the United States, United Kingdom, Australia and New Zealand on October 13 in a 200-page hardcover book and digital e-book. Trailers for the film have been up on the web for some months now and the new movie is due for release in London in a few short days.
