My aim is to sell the widest and most comprehensive range of Tintin collectables anywhere in the UK. These will include original Herge drawings, original signed Herge books, rare original Petit Vingtieme / Tintin Journals, Tintin First Editions in both English and French plus other collectables including figurines, cars, cups & plates, T Shirts, posters, framed First Edition plates, a wide range of Tintin books including some very rare items and many other items.In 2008 Egmont, Tinitn's UK Publisher produced a series of 6 Facsimile editions using the original artwork and binding from the first French colour Editions. The books included : Tintin in America, The Cigars of the Pharaoh, The Blue Lotus, The Broken Ear, King Ottokar's Sceptre and the Black Island - thankfully they still used the masterful translation by Michael Turner and Leslie Lonsdale-Cooper. These are excellent collectors editions produced in very small numbers and very difficult to find now. The Black Island 2008 Facsimile edition - excellent condition - see photos.
This is the rarest and most sought after of all the facsimile albums. It is completely different from the version we all know as Herge updated the book in the 1960s for the English release - here we have the original version with a different colour pallet, old cars and aeroplanes. I've priced mine realistically here based on rarity and condition.The item "Tintin The Black Island Facsimile Edition 2008 Excellent condition" is in sale since Thursday, December 12, 2019.
