Their website is http://www.thetintinshop.uk.com - you can order the facsimiles on the "Books and Posters" page, on the drop-down menus next to each book.

Mission accomplished! I got both of the facsmile editions of The Blue Lotus and Cigars of the Pharaoh, and the shop was so nice, they even put them by for me when I went shopping.
Bring on The Broken Ear facsmile English edition!

Speaking of The Broken Ear - that is another early Herge Tintin book that looks fantastic in B&W compared to the colour version (like The Blue Lotus does).

The Tintin Shop told me they had plenty of copies in stock; Lotus must have flown off the shelves for them to sell out in little over a week!

Hopefully this will encourage the publishers to carry on producing the B/W series.

I think I picked up the last two copies this afternoon - one of each. The only ones they had left were the ones on the shelf (aside from one shrinkwrapped but stil damaged) so I took those. They mentioned they'd sold out very quickly, so I was pleased to take any versions, 'shop-soiled' or not.
