Artist Has Turned An Old Ford Falcon Into A Tank-Shaped Traveling Library

1

In celebration of world book day on 5th march, 7UP has teamed up with Buenos Aires-based artist Raul Lemesoff in the creation of ‘weapons of mass instruction’, a traveling library that tours Argentina in the shape of a tank.

The ongoing project, which Lemesoff has built upon throughout the last few years, sees a 1979 Ford Falcon transform into a military-style vehicle, with a rotating upper chamber and pseudo-barrel.

Although the tank may look militant, it has a very serious function of peace — Lemesoff tours through Argentina’s urban centers and rural communities, offering free books to anyone interested. Around 900 books fit on the car’s built-in shelves, with a varied collection of poetry, novels and biographies.
