Herge Ou Le Secret De L'image. Pierre Fresnault-Deruelle
From the description of Bianca Castafiore, La Diva Du Vingtieme Siecle.
"Pierre Fresnault-Deruelle seeks to unravel the secret of the luminous complexity of Hergé's work. He shows us how the adventures of Tintin form a vast chamber of echoes where the images never cease to refer to each other. He introduces us to "scenariography", a composition of recurring motifs specific to the work of the master of Brussels. He makes us understand that, in this designer-storyteller, everything is held together, that an underlying system is there which unifies the organization and distribution of the boxes. In fact, with the adventures of Tintin, the sets become narrative counterpoints, and the gags are also lessons in poetic art in which Hergé expresses his ideal in the matter.
