Pin "La Tour"

Pin “La Tour” is a handsome Obscure pin (épinglette). It was made by Corner Coinderoux in 1991. It is number 139 in their catalog. Corner Coinderoux was one of the three big pin makers starting from the 1980s, together with Yann Arthus Bertrand and Démons & Merveilles. They were specialised in pins of comics like Tintin and Blake & Mortimer.

This pin finds its origins in La Tour, first published by Casterman in 1987. At page 46 you can see the cube sphere hanging in the room of Elias Aureolus Palingenius.

Thanks to Olivier Tissot, ‎Jacob Munkhammar, Etienne Schréder and Nicolas Rivoal.
