Tintin NFT Collection: it is launched
Tintinimaginatio, in partnership with artèQ, has launched its first two Tintin NFTs.
Tintin NFTs drop
The second ("utility"), the NFT Blue Lotus certificate, which is delivered with the purchase of the high definition print available as a limited edition of 777 copies.
These relate to the first project of The Blue Lotus cover created by Hergé, in 1936. This colourful composition was in fact sent by the artist himself to his publisher Casterman, on February 12th, 1936.
Two first NFTs for one work of art:
- The first (“collectible”) The Blue Lotus NFT - a 1777 limited edition in Ethereum
- The second (“utility”) The Blue Lotus NFT certificate which is delivered with the purchase of the physical print print available as a limited series (777 copies).
These two NFTs will soon be part of a series entitled “HERGÉ’S MISSING WORKS OF ART” the aim of which is to bring together and make people (re)discover works that are absent from the Hergé Museum’s collection. And the opportunities offered today by Web 3.0 will enable us to spread the heritage and knowledge of Hergé's works of art.

Knowledge of its history is essential, because it is a source of value. The principle of the NFT - which can be summarised in three words: authenticity, clarity and traceability - will allow us to establish this value, as well as the quality and notoriety of Hergé's artistic work.
These unique technological objects provide an in-depth knowledge of the work that occupies a singular place in the artistic production of Hergé. For this reason, they will be accompanied by a digital booklet devised by the Hergéologist, Philippe Goddin.
The Blue Lotus printed and numbered
As part of the NFT Tintin collection,each "Blue Lotus" frame is numbered. The numbering is in Arabic numerals to which the corresponding Chinese characters have been added, in a traditional style similar to that used by Hergé for the purposes of the adventure. The calligraphy is entirely handmade by Fifi Tchang, the daughter of Hergé's famous friend who inspired the sidekick Tintin in The Blue Lotus.
This limited-edition print is also the subject of a NFT certificate bearing the identical numbering as that indicated on the back of the frame.
