@germkoh has made many wonderful projects but I think my favourite is “Journal”, begun in 1995.
The following is Germaine description of the project taken from her website: “A terse personal journal appearing daily in the classified ads and, in more recent versions, on LED message boards and roadside signs."

By the time it was finished in 1899, the NYS Capitol was the most costly building ever constructed in the United States, and at 32 years, took longer to build than the Great Pyramid of Giza in Egypt.

When he couldn't get an appointment with Walt, he painted him a giant letter—twenty by twenty-four feet—in which he requested an interview and had it sent special delivery. Walt capitulated, granted him an interview, and then hired him a few days later.

But once again money was not his only or perhaps even greatest consideration. Walt harbored two impulses that often warred: the go-getting impulse to succeed, which could be certified by money and recognition, and the deeper psychological impulse to control, which could be satisfied only by making his films exactly as he wanted to make them without interference.

On display are the LEGO Unitron Crater Cruiser, LEGO Aquanaut Crystal Crawler, and LEGO Aquashark Barracuda Deep Sea Predator. These sets were put together by Sean Svadlenak, and they were left as he built them. He chose to have them be a collector's item instead of taking them apart and playing with the pieces separately.

Not exactly what you're looking for, but there's also a 1850 book that Google has scanned that typographically reproduces gravestones in the Pioneer Valley of MA called "Inscriptions on the Grave Stones in the Grave Yards of Northampton"

He is going to finish the Big Hike in 1920, and then he is going to settle down and write a book of everything and everybody he has seen—a "regular" book of travels. He has letters from churches, universities and schools to show that he has delivered some excellent lectures about people and customs of the earth. That is one way he manages to keep the wolf away.
