This is the last ever Tintin book, with previously unpublished archive material. In an interview shortly before his death, Hergé wrote of the last Tintin adventure: "The plot revolves around a tale of forgers … The book is set in the world of contemporary art. The narration itself is in the course of evolution. I am still doing my research and I honestly don’t know where this story will lead me." Sadly, the tale was never completed, but this unique book gives an insight into the work Hergé had done on the project before he died. At the end, Tintin is about to be cast into a living sculpture by a mysterious enemy - one last cliffhanger for the world’s best-loved boy journalist.
