Ever seen a tank literally covered in books? In Argentina, an artist named Raul Lemesoff has converted an old Ford Falcon tank into a moving library, and now travels the country giving the books away for free, going from big cities like Buenos Aires to small towns that hardly have any books at all. Raul calls the tank a "weapon of mass instruction," and its model is the exact one used by the Argentinian government during its dictatorship. Raul says that his project is "a contribution to peace through literature," and aims to "bring literature where it cannot be found."
