Cover Candy: 80th Anniversary Limited Edition of The Secret of the Old Clock

Nancy Drew, the iconic girl detective, celebrates her 80th anniversary in print with Penguin's special edition of The Secret of the Old Clock, which was first published on April 28, 1930. Attic Salt's mother has an excellent collection of Nancy Drew books from the 1950s (go here to read about Nancy Drew cover design history) and this edition, which only costs $6.99 and is available starting tomorrow, would be a great addition to a Nancy collection.

  1. I am consistently a sucker for:

    a) Adorable patterned paper


    b) Classic cameo-type silhouettes.

    It is almost tragic that the book industry has cottoned on to my weak points so thoroughly. This makes me want to start reading Nancy Drew.
