During my childhood in the 1970s / early 80s, me and my brother had all the then-available paperbacks, including Lake Of Sharks, an English hardback of Golden Fleece (which I got at the school Summer Fair bookstall for ten pence!), plus French hardback copies of Congo, Blue Lotus and the Blue Oranges film book, all picked up on two school trips to Paris. The last addition was the English Blue Lotus when it was published.

My brother's still got all of those books, and my 6 year old nephew's currently getting into them!
I've been getting shiny new hardback replacements for the main colour series over the last couple of years, as I'm unlikely to get 'em back off my bro', and those old paperbacks are looking more than a little scruffy anyway (for example, I once lent King Ottokar's Sceptre to someone in the same class at primary school, and for reasons best known to himself, he drew a moustache and breasts on the cover picture of Tintin!).

Anyhow, at the moment, I've got:

Tintin in the Land of the Soviets
Tintin in America
Cigars of The Pharaoh
The Castafiore Emerald
Flight 714
Tintin and the Picaros
Tintin and Alph-Art (new edition - I've also got Rodier's version, which I translated and printed out myself before the new one came out!)

The original plan was to get two a month, starting at either end with Soviets and Picaros, and then work my way in, meeting somewhere in the middle with Seven Crystal Balls.
What with stuff like the new Alph-Art and the facsimile editions coming out, that's sort of been forgotten.
I got the facsimile of Congo earlier this year, and America only arrived yesterday, courtesy of the Tintin Shop! (they'd run out of stocks of The Secret Ray, ordered at the same time, but they say it'll be sent on as soon as they get some more in.)

So, back on track next month, I should be getting Blue Lotus and Tibet to stick in my bookcase!

I had friends like yours when I was at school too (Philistines). One friend I lent a book to manage to completely destroy it with a glass of Coke. Moral of the story if your starting or have a collection do not lend them out! And dont let them make you feel like a geek who doesnt lend his books out. Tell them you are a collector and rise above...

All of them, I'm proud to say. I wouldn't count myself a true fan otherwise.

"Tintin And Alph-Art (new edition - I've also got Rodier's version, which I translated and printed out myself before the new one came out)" (John Sewell)

I myself have the gold covered Tintin and Alph-Art hardback with Hergé's original sketches and intentions in English - is the one you mention different?
I am looking for a completed version in colour in English.

Note from Admin: We do not want to get into trouble with Moulinsart again, so we ask users not to discuss where to find/how to obtain un-official Tintin related works.
We can only confirm that an English, colourised version of Rodier's Alph-Art does indeed exist.

I have all the color english Tintin books (from America to Picaros), plus I just got the black and white versions of Soviets and Congo for Christmas. (I really wish they would translate the color version of Congo to english...) I also have Destination New York (Jo and Zette) and the Tintin Games book (does anyone else have this? It's weird). I don't have Alph-art nor have I read it, and something tells me I just don't want to.

I have all of them except Soviets, Congo and Alph-Art, Methuen editions for the most part, Magent of The Blue Lotus and Atlantic Little Brown of Tintin in America and Tintin and the Picaros.

They're all about 28 years old now - got them in Europe in the mid 70's - and they're pretty tattered by now.

I'd like to replace them - what's the best way to get replacements?
Should I get hard covers?

I have "Tintin In America" through to "Tintin and the Picaros". Along with that, I also have:
"Tintin in the land of the Soviets",
"Tintin in the Congo",
"Tintin, The complete companion",
"Tintin, pocket companion",
"Tintin at Sea",
"Tintin and Alph-Art",
"Tintin and the Lake of Sharks" (in English and Spanish),
"Tintin en el Congo" (Spanish),
"The little book of Peril",
"The little book of Travel",
"Mr. Pump's Legacy",
"Destination, New York"
and "The Secret Ray".

I really want to get a hold of the making of books as they are no longer available except on e-Bay for extortionate prices.

I've read 23 adventures (Alph-Art is not published in Turkish yet.)

Despite reading The Seven Crystal Balls and Prisoners of the Sun but I have not got them in my library yet.

· Jo, Zette & Jocko: Mr. Pump's Legacy
· Jo, Zette & Jocko: The Valley of the Cobras (in Turkish Kobralar Vadisi, but the names are not Jo, Zette & Jocko. They have translated it as Panpan. It is by Hergé, but I think it is not an offcial publication).

· Popol Out West
· Tintin: The Complete Companion Michael Farr
· Le Musee imaginaire de Tintin (Hergé, Bob De Moor, Michel Baudson,Diddier Platteau, Michel Demoret, Chang Ning Ho) I wish I could read French. Anyone knows this book has an English translation?
· Tintin Games Book
· Tintin Action Play Book 2
· De Avonturen van Kuifje in Portugal Jan Aarnout Boer 2004)
And some pirates.
Because of the experiences I know what could happen to my books, I do not give one from my collection to anyone.
