Arma De Instruccion Masiva: The Portable Tank Library
This car-turned-library, made in Argentina, is a sight for sore eyes. Artist took an old 1979 Ford Falcon, a popular mode of transport amongst the military forces of its time, and transformed it into a mobile library shaped like a tank.
His portable project titled Arma De Instruccion Masiva, translated as Weapon of Mass Instruction, roams the streets of Buenos Aires, attacking its people with knowledge — get it? At any given time the tank is loaded with over 900 books, and is as Lemesoff says a “contribution to peace through literature.”

Productora A47 Mobile
The Productora A47 mobile library is based in a truck that tours Mexico City, giving citizens greater accessibility to culture, arts and knowledge that can only be found on the page.
The not-for-profit foundation alumnos47 looks to bring contemporary art, education, debate and visual culture to the community. The moving truck is only one of various programs and services that reach the people in the city. The open concept and spacious atrium encourages crowds to peruse the collection of reads. The tiered floor is apt for a quick sit-down book break, or for small presentations that may be given in the space.
