Directors Sir Peter Jackson and Steven Spielberg have written the forewords to a new book on the art of The Adventures of Tintin.

The book will accompany a new film made by the two directors, The Adventures of Tintin, due for release later this year.

Oscar winners Joe Letteri and Richard Taylor also share their insights into making the film in the book.

The art in the book has been created by Weta artists.

Moulinsart, the official organisation that looks after the world of Tintin, has contributed an introductory chapter on the comic's creator Georges Remi, aka Hergé.

The book, The Art of The Adventures of Tintin, will be released in the United States, United Kingdom, Australia and New Zealand on October 13 in a 200-page hardcover book and digital e-book.
