Rudy Nappi (b. 1923)
Rudy Nappi was the principal cover artist for the US Hardy Boys and Nancy Drew series in the 1950s through to the late 1970s. His portrayals of the three main characters were regarded as the images most recognizable. In 1968, six out of eight titles were published when MacDonald took over the reigns, and the dust jackets featured Nappi's work.
Nappi drew the covers for six other original series in 1980 in the volumes: 50, 51, 53-56. The softcover Hardy Boys Adventure Activity Book and the revised edition
of The Hardy Boys Detective Handbook show Nappi's handiwork.
Nappi also created covers for the collectible puzzle books.
