“Raul is…one of those crazy great people needed in society.”
That’s one way to describe Argentinean artist Raul Lemesoff who drives a 1979 Ford Falcon that has been transformed into a 900 book roving library resembling a military tank. The symbolic tank has been all over the country, giving away books and spreading the word of peace.
Featured in 7UP’s celebrate #feelsgoodtobeyou campaign, many of Lemesoff’s family and friends weren’t quite sure what the unique man was building. Knowing he is bit of wild card – rumors spread he was building everything from a submarine to a spaceship.
Finally after months of anticipation – it was revealed Lemesoff was indeed building – a weapon.
Fortunately, the message he has to share with the world is both ironic and heart-warming.
“My missions are very dangerous – I attack people in a very nice and fun way,” the eccentric creator said. “Books open your mind. You can have a free book – if you promise to read it”.
