Hardy Boys cover artwork
« on: March 20, 2013, 03:52:30 PM »
I can't recall if this has been posted before or not, but I recently ran across some cool pictures of the full artwork used for Hardy Boys books that I thought some others would enjoy. This thread can serve as a place to put the links and pictures of any others you find- from any Hardy Boys series. Here's the artwork by Rudi Nappi for the revised edition of The Secret of Skull Mountain. :) 8)



and an even bigger version

I ran across Paul Bachem's site and he's got some cover artwork up from some of the many Hardy Boys covers he's done! :) 8)

Yeah- Paul Bachem is one of my favorite artists for Digest cover art. And this is a particularly great example of his work. :) 8)

There are a number of others (including some for sale) at this site.

Here's #122 in The Hardy Boys Mystery Stories, Carnival of Crime. (Quality is pretty poor on this one though.)

There are a ton others you can view on this page too. (From the Digests and Casefiles, with both The Hardy Boys and Nancy Drew represented.)
