Ingeniously done.

As a big Harry Potter fan myself, I found this ad to be so artful but yet truthful at the same time. If you were to talk to any book lover you would know how much they really hate when a movie butchers a good book. Both Harry Potter and The Da Vinci Code are highly recognized books that have become decently well produced movies but even with great production there are many important details that are left out in the movie that only book lovers would understand. This ad completely grasps that concept in a way that is easy to understand and gives the viewer and idea of what company it is portraying. I didn't even have to read the writing in the bottom corner to know that this was an advertisement for a bookstore. Although I found the image the most important factor of the ad, the writing “A big part of the story is lost when it becomes a movie,” really does a good job of pulling the whole thing together. In just that one simple sentence, it describes the essence of the entire ad. It gives explanation, not that it was needed, to the cut out of the DVD from the whole of the book. Overall, I’d say this ad was brilliantly designed!

When books become movies the story is often different and missing important parts that the reader of the book would know. This ad is very clever because shows the importance and relevance of bookstores. It shows the audience that without bookstore, the public would miss out on small parts in books. This ad is very easy for he audience to understand. This is a clever way of showing that movies leave out important parts of the book because of the “missing” DVD piece. This ad conveys the truth to the audience, which encourages them to come into a bookstore and purchase a physical copy of a book. This ad is designed very well and deserves the award it won. The small writing the bottom corner indicating the company the ad is for, is so small because the ad is so self-explanatory and has a obvious message to the reader.
