With this work, I experimented with new ways readers can experience the content and art of a favorite book series from my childhood. I created new formats for three of the Tintin books, based on the content and how I wanted the book to function in your hands. One book is the origin story. The second book is an accordion fold that displays large, beautiful story panels. The third book pops out at the reader to “hit” them with the harsh truth about how prejudice plays a role in the comics.
This project was a trip down memory lane. I got to revisit my childhood while researching the history of Herge and scanning hundreds of pictures of my favorite Tintin panels.
