Just for note, just like with The Secret Of The Old Mill & The Missing Chums, this will be the first time that Hunting For Hidden Gold, The Secret Of The Caves & The Mystery Of Cabin Island will receive cover art based on the Revised Text Of the book.  The current cover art was original commissioned for all of these books in 1959-1960, while the texts were not revised till, for Old Mill & Chums in 1962, Gold in 1963, Caves in 1964 and Cabin Island in 1966.  Shore Road was revised and issued new artwork in 1964, while it's most recent artwork for the original 1928 book was in 1960; with the 3 original covers, this will be #5 for Shore Road which ties it with The Tower Treasure

That is a pretty neat tidbit to know about the covers being based on the revised text for the first time! :) 8) I honestly wasn't super enthused with the first four covers done (save for maybe The Secret of the Old Mill- that was probably my favorite of all of them). But maybe these four will be more to my liking. In any case, nice to know that it's continuing. New prints keeps the classic Hardy Boys series vibrant and alive for new generations.

The cover art for Hunting for Hidden Gold is up on Amazon.com (https://www.amazon.com/Hunting-Hidden-Gold-Hardy-Boys/dp/0515159077/ref=sr_1_8?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1487870758&sr=1-8&keywords=Hardy+Boys)
It seems to be by one of the same artists that did the first round of books. This one isn't my favorite style, but it's okay.

Okay- whoever did the cover art for The Secret of the Old Mill and The Secret of the Caves (which I assume to be the same person) did an excellent job! (Maybe he only does books with the word "secret" in the title. ;D) I really like those cover arts, but I don't much care for the other styles. Thanks for posting the links though.
