Cool Tintin Concept Art

See how Spielberg etc adapted the books

The Adventures Of Tintin: The Secret Of The Unicorn hits cinemas next Wednesday, and we're rather excited about it. With bananas action scenes, a spirit that's true to Hergé's books and some really funny moments, it's a helluva summer blockbuster in all but, er, release date. So we're very pleased to bring you some exclusive concept art from the accompanying book, The Art Of The Adventures Of Tintin, by Weta's Chris Guise with forewords from Steven Spielberg and Peter Jackson.

Also featuring introductions from effects legends Joe Letteri (Avatar) and Richard Taylor (The Lord Of The Rings) and interviews from those involved, the book charts the process of turning Hergé's drawings into convincing 3D images, and mixes art with interviews with the cast and crew.

The Art of The Adventures of Tintin (HarperCollins) is out now.
