BuenosAires artist RaulLemesoff recently re-configured an old Ford Falcon to look like a military tank. But instead of carting around ballistics, the tank has built-in shelves that can carry about 900 books. He’s dubbed his creative mobile library as the “weapon of mass instruction.”

After working for several years on the project,Lemesoff is now driving his completed bookmobile on a peaceful mission across Argentina, distributing books throughout urban centers and rural communities.

He says the tank can generate much social good as “a structure that has the ability of transporting books, giving books away, collecting books, making a mess of people’s heads.”
