The art

We love this series of Tintin cover posters, in Hergé's distinct ligne claire drawing style, and in the original French as Hergé designed them.

Explorers on the Moon (On a marché sur la Lune in French, literally meaning “We walked on the Moon”) is the seventeenth volume of The Adventures of Tintin, the comics series by Belgian cartoonist Hergé. Completing a story arc begun in the preceding volume, Destination Moon, the narrative tells of the young reporter Tintin, his dog Snowy, and friends Captain Haddock, Professor Calculus, and Thomson and Thompson who are aboard humanity's first manned rocket mission to the Moon. Developed in part through the suggestions of Hergé's friends Bernard Heuvelmans and Jacques Van Melkebeke, Explorers on the Moon was produced following Hergé's extensive research into the possibility of human space travel – a feat that had yet to be achieved – with the cartoonist seeking for the work to be as realistic as possible.

The artist

Georges Prosper Remi (1907 – 1983), known by the pen name Hergé, from the French pronunciation of his initials, was a Belgian cartoonist. He is best known for creating The Adventures of Tintin, the series of comic albums which are considered one of the most popular European comics of the 20th century. His works were executed in his distinct ligne claire drawing style and have been widely acclaimed for their clarity of draughtsmanship and meticulous, well-researched plots.

The print and frame

The poster is framed by hand in Cambridgeshire in the UK, using only European sourced PEFC™ and FSC approved woods. Frames are Fine Art Trade Guild accredited which means they meet strict conservation standards and are built to last for generations to come.

We use Clarity+ glazing which is a high-quality acrylic glass alternative, offering high UV resistance which doesn't yellow over time, is not easily scratched and is safe for use in children's bedrooms.

Your framed poster will arrive with D-rings and cord already attached, ready to hang right out of the box.
