The Adventures of Tintin at Sea by Michael Farr
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


A must for any Tintin fan, this is both the official exhibition catalogue and a celebration of 75 years of the irrepressible boy reporter.

Published to accompany a National Maritime Museum exhibit of the same name 'The Adventures of Tintin at Sea' concentrates on anything sea-related that appears in the Tintin books. A 22-page section called "The Ships", which detail the major ships that appear in the series, is followed by an 8-page "The Sailors" section, a 10-page "Navigation" section, and a final 4-page "Ports" section.

From his first appearance in January 1929, the globe-trotting Tintin took to boats in his pursuit of adventure. Motor-launches and liners, cargo vessels and historic galleons: each is meticulously depicted by Herge, who laboured over every detail. A new dimension, punctuated with a staggering repertoire of salty swear words - 'billions of blistering barnacles!' - came in 1940 with the introduction of Captain Haddock. From then on, with this loyal, whisky-loving companion, Tintin could hardly be a landlubber.

'A must for fans and newcomers alike' -- Lloyd's List
