"I'm So Lucky You Found Me: public land inside the city" is a handmade book by 596 Acres and collaborator Daniel Eizirik, a Brasilian artist who spent winter 2012-13 documenting the experience of transforming Brooklyn's acres. You can read about the process (and see some images) here.

This is 596 Acres' first book! We learned so much making it - about the life of lots in various stages of transformation, about printing and scoring and hand-stitching books, and about the connections between Brooklyn's neighborhoods. These books are lovely if we might say so ourselves. Here's an article, with some images of the inside, from our friends at Inhabitat.
