Tintin Hyslop

Panel from Cigars of the Pharoah, lettered by Neil Hyslop

Neil Hyslop was the letterer of the English editions of Hergé's adventures of Tintin, beginning with The Crab with the Golden Claws in 1958. A cartographer in the civil service, he was found by translators Michael Turner and Leslie Lonsdale-Cooper, and hand-lettered all Tintin's adventures in English up to The Blue Lotus in 1983. Since the publication of Tintin in the Congo in 2005, new editions have been re-lettered using a digital font based on the lettering style used in the French editions.
