    Artist and activist Lemesoff Raul's bookmobile is a “Weapon of Mass Instruction.” The conceptual art-minded vehicle is a refitted 1979 Ford Falcon — a car that belonged to the Argentinean army that has since been turned into a mobile book tank. The “military” library can hold up to 900 books, which Raul distributes for free as a way to spread messages of peace and literacy.
