Weapons of Mass Instruction Mobile Library

Activist-artist Raul Lemesoff’s “Arma De Instruccion Masiva“, or “Weapon of Mass Instruction,” is a peaceful, mobile library to cart around free reading material in Argentina. The tank-inspired vehicle uses a 1979 Ford Falcon as its frame and is outfitted with shelves and around 900 books of all genres. Lemesoff has toured all over Argentina bringing books with him wherever he goes and now hopes to do something similar in Peru and Bolivia.

Spiraling Tower of Babel Book Sculpture

This spiraling tower in Buenos Aires was built with over 30,000 donated books. Called the Tower of Babel, the sculpture was built with books donated from all over the world in honor of the city being named the 2011 World Book Capital. When it was time to take the sculpture down, visitors were encouraged to pick and book and take it home with them.
