Tintin Magazine: "Voir et Savoir" 'Chromos'

#1 · Posted: 15 Mar 2006 09:09
Hi there, I bought this little image at a fair about 10 years ago, but recently got more interested in it.

Has anybody got a clue where it comes from and why it was made and if and where I could purchase some more of them ??

that's funny -
I just reposted my old thread looking for the books these come from. Once in a while they come up on ebay as separate prints but from what I understand, there were 6 Tintin books ...part of the "Voir et Savoir" series - 1979. They included WWII planes, pre-WWII planes, automobiles, Balloons, Ships and I think one on Trains.
Extremely rare ...I think I saw one of them on ebay years ago...if you need more info on this - its covered in the Tintin "Reporters" book

I think they were done originally as the separate images, and given away in the Tintin magazine; the books were albums collecting the images. I’ve not looked for them for a while, but the images themselves used to be fairly commonly available, the books tended to be more pricey and rare.
