This letter introduces a combinatorial construction of girth-eight high-rate low-density parity-check codes based on integer lattices. The parity,check matrix of a code is defined as a point-line incidence matrix of a 1-configuration based on a rectangular integer lattice, and the girth-eight property is achieved by a judicious selection of sets of parallel lines included in a configuration. A class of codes with a wide range of lengths and column weights is obtained. The resulting matrix of parity checks is an array of circulant matrices.
