Advertising: Gandhi Bookstore Ogilvy Ads Use Classic Tales

Mexican bookstore chain Ghandi Bookstores has fairy tale characters reading classic childrens books. The illustrations are so beautifully done, it's as if the characters have come to life, straight out of childrens books themselves.
The first two are easy to recognize but the third may not be as familiar as it's not strictly a fairy tale. It's the character of Samsa from Kafka's story Metamorphosis.
The Ogilvy advertising agency sure knows how to produce beautiful illustrations!
