I’ve been having some fun playing around with the Bobbsey Twins book covers.
Each book cover has repurposed wood inside, comes with a hanger on back and I add screws for easy installation if you prefer that it fits flush to the wall.

I love the design and I love Elvis. Lana....came out in 1963. Monica Haviland wrote a bunch of these “steamy” pulps and Tom Miller, 1913-2004 did the great cover art.
But as far as Credits for the Bobbsey Twins covers after 1950...Here’s all I could find.
In 1960, the Stratemeyer syndicate printed a new edition of the series, with picture covers, no dust jackets, and a lavender spine and back cover (replacing earlier various green bindings). Many of the cover paintings were dust-jacket paintings added in the 1950s (for earlier versions, a single common dust-jacket painting was used throughout an edition), but most were new with the "purple" edition.

In the 1950’s Janet Laura Scott did some of the artwork but its not clear at all. https://www.invaluable.com/artist/scott-janet-laura-5modqxqkhv/sold-at-auction-prices/
