INDIRA - Jakarta, 1982-1984?

The Indonesian books completely mimic the early Wanderer "arch" style, utilizing the first covers produced for the series (by Sanderson and Garrido). Some of the covers have copied images of the original books, and one of my books (Old Lace) uses the UK Armada B artwotk. The original US internals are also reproduced. It appears that the reprints were short lived and ended around the time that the series took a break before the launch of the Nancy Drew Files.

Additionally at least one of the titles from the Be a Detective series was translated into Indonesian - a scan of the cover is included below.
