Tintin and Lorem ipsum

Published • 29 Jun 2008

I was re-watching Hergé’s The Adventures of Tintin a while back and noticed the animators set the bodies of the newspapers in Lorem ipsum as filler text. Tintin and Snowie being favourite heroes of my childhood this brought a little smile to my face.

Tintin: newspaper and lipsum!

Lorem ispum is a placeholder or filler text used in typography, design and other publishing as means of testing the visual representation. Lorem ipsum features roughly the same letter distribution as in English.
