Did you purchase the book from the Pompidou centre.
Yes, as it happens, but unfortunately the weekend after
the exhibition closed (I'd to be in Paris for something else, and couldn't afford to go twice... ;-/), so I got to see a lot of museum people taking down boards and peeling off a lot of little sticky pads where the captions to the exhibits had been...
I've not been very lucky with the Pompidou and surroundings: the Tintin Moon exhibition was on in a building on the far side of the square during the Eighties, but the day I was in Paris as a student, it was closed for a public holiday... I had to stand on a box and look in the window, and even then couldn’t se anything but the back of a model of Tintin in his space-suit…
Im still yet to go I will go there soon
I'd be interested to know if the pages of art which were donated by the Fondation are on show if you go; don't miss the roof terrace as well, as it has tremendous views over Paris.
I have a few long weekends coming up might make the trip over to Belgium.
You can get to Paris from Brussels quite easily, but there is more Tintin stuff to do in Brussels, that for a long weekend I'd choose to go there, if I were you.
