Those books were donated to our high school library and it is actually an illustrated book and hard bound with glossy printing. Mag ilog tawn mi sa una. Nahurot gyud nako ug basa ang total 24 volumes. Vivid pa kaayo sa akong memory ang mga drawings ug ang millions of blistering barnacles expression, etc.
I never realized nga 70 years diay ang dedication sa Belgian author nga si Herge (from 1907 - 1983) to create that book.
The book sold over 200 million copies and still growing.
I even thought of buying a set from ebay. Collector's item na man.
The book speaks for all generations and I am sure my kids will still enjoy it.
