Lost and Found Secrets

ad-1ad-2  ad-3For my blog post, I decided to create 3 print ads that represent motifs that support the theme of Lost Luggage by Jordi Punti and as clearly stated in all 3 ads, the theme is “everyone has a reason to keep their own secrets”. The ads are meant to convince people to read the book, and I tried to do that by partially revealing some secrets that would lure in readers who are curious or want to learn more.

***SPOILERS***

Ad #1 details a mother no longer being able to bear the pain of a lost child. Instead of moving on, she masked with the sadness by adopting another child, 9-year-old Gabriel, and naming him after her dead son Cristóbal. Soon after adoption, newly named Cristóbal discovered about his predecessor and unwittingly confronts his “mother” with her secret.

Ad #2 is about how 18-year-old Conrad, who suffered from early age baldness, hid his wig from his father who is a barber. Being a barber, Martí should’ve had a natural strong dislike towards wigs and toupees and that was exactly what caused his son Conrad to hide his top-secret toupee.

Finally, Ad #3 represents Gabriel, 30 years after abandoning them after birth, meeting his four sons after they rescued him from gamblers. He reveals to them that he was afraid to talk or even meet them as he was sure that the Christophers had a passionate hatred towards him. So, he hid… just a couple of meters away in the room right next to the Christopher’s headquarters for tracking down their father.

When these print ads’ subtexts (motifs) are put together, it should stick the theme into your head. If not, then read the book. If the motifs of the theme sound interesting, read the book. If you’re not sure on whether to read the book, read it.
