A Bookmobile of the Future

June 20, 2011

Today while reading a blog put out by my new favorite magazine Mental Floss, we subscribe to it here at EPL if you would like to take a look, I learned about a book tank created by Argentinean artist, Raul Lemesoff , that he calls a “weapon of mass instruction.” Raul travels around the cities of Argentina and remote areas of the country, where books are not as readily available, giving out free books in a Ford Falcon once owned by the Argentinean armed forces but now covered by over 900 hardcover books. Raul says that his project is “a contribution to peace through literature,” and aims to “bring literature where it cannot be found.” Peace through literature, pretty cool Raul.
