The Compendium: 1 November

Halloween 2013 kept us ghoulishly entertained with a collection of themed ads, and this one from Lux proves that beauty and cosmetics commercials don’t always have to be obvious.

Stephen King has coupled the release of his new book, Doctor Sleep, with an immersive online promotion that allows readers to delve into the history of the novel’s protagonist. The promotion gives viewers just enough information to pique their interest, and hopefully encourage them to purchase the book.
