Library Look: Weapon of Mass Instruction

How cool is this picture? This is the Weapon of Mass Instruction, and
is seriously “a thing”.

Courtesy of a converted 1979 Ford Falcon, Buenos Aires artist Paul Lemesoff has created a tank-like vehicle, complete with non-functioning gun, to combat ignorance.

Called Arma de Instruccion Masiva, the tank can hold about 900 books, and they are free to anyone who would like one. The only stipulation is that you have to promise to read what you take.

7 UP made a video featuring this. Eccentric? Maybe. Crazy? Maybe. Brilliant? Definitely!!

  1. This is sooooo awesome!!! It put a HUGE smile on my face! We need more people like Raul. I simply loved the crazy look of passion in his eyes. I'll have to share this video on Bibliophile's FB page. Thanks, Carmen!!!!
