Do such ads work?

i agree that the approach, execution and copy are bang on, but would you pick up a book up because you want to be someone else?

I wouldn't.

The campaign's fun, but i doubt it would result in any real sales. Apologies if I'm being the party pooping client, but wasn't it David Ogilvy who said "Sell or..."

Adwait, I imagine the ads are attempting to attract people who already read, to that specific bookstore. I read everyday but I don't read fiction so the ads don't strike me. However, my wife is an avid fiction reader and I know that, when she's involved in a book, she identifies heavily with the main character—this is what good writing does and Mint Vinetu specializes in CLassic Literature (very good writing). So I think this series is spot on, it speaks to people who will understand the sentiment and associate that feeling with Mint Vinetu.

There's another shot at the ads here: http://www.ibelieveinadv.com/2011/04/20071/

Maybe the proximity of page to face should tell us that this is more symbolic than literal -- about assuming another life, and not about looking at type on a page.

Anyway, it's simple and stylish. Admirably achieved.

Seen it before - but still like it.

Think it would have been better if they used foreground perspective so that it looked like the person really was reading and not just shoving their head inside the book.
