Weapon of Mass Instruction


"Literature gets a ride in the streets of Buenos Aires"


The AFP YouTube channel says:
"In Argentina, a local artist has transformed an old ford Falcon into a roving library. He weaves through the streets of Buenos Aires and the rest of the country, offering books to passers-by in the hopes of sparking the country's appetite for literature."
American Libraries tweeted it as a "Weapon of Mass Instruction", which is an apt description since the artist made the car look like a tank.
