An artist has taken to the streets of Argentina in an army tank armed with “Weapons of Mass Instruction.”
Raul Lemesoff has created a tank-like vehicle from a 1979 Ford Falcon and filled it with books.
His mission is to battle ignorance and spread knowledge.
His ‘Weapon Of Mass Instruction’ (Arma de Instruccion Masiva) is complete with a swivelling turret, a non-functioning gun, and no shortage of storage space to house about 900 books – both inside and outside the vehicle.
As documented in a video made by 7Up, the Buenos Aires-based artist delivers free books to people of all ages.
He has just one condition: they must read what’s been given to them. If that doesn’t inspire you to pick up a novel yourself to add to your book collection, I don’t know what will.
If you need some recommendations, here are some from Margaret Atwood.
