Martine, a mischievous 10-year-old girl, is experiencing unprecedented adventures with her four-legged companion Patapouf. Tintin, a famous international reporter, lives dangerous adventures with his dog Snowy and Captain Haddock. These two comic strip heroes have one thing in common... Tournai!
In 1780, Donat Casterman opened a bookshop in Tournai. This was the beginning of a great adventure for this entrepreneur who then became a publisher and then a printer. First dedicated to religious publications and works for young people, the company took a historic turn when publishing the adventures of Tintin from 1934 onwards.
Thanks to the growing success of Hergé's albums, Casterman Editions present new comics: Petzi, Alix and Lefranc, but also... Martine! This heroine, also from Tournai, came straight out of Marcel Marlier's imagination and was also a worldwide success.
We share with you anecdotes, news and the most beautiful photos of Tournai!
