I've ordered my copy ... can't wait for it to get here.

I did a quick google search and came up with a site that has the book and accepts overseas orders. However, there is a note for US customers, that delivery might be delayed due to customs inspection.

Here's the link:
http://www.nippon-export.com/cata...roduct_info.php?products_id=26003

I had also tried yesasia.com, but their site is so hard to navigate and it wouldn't show anything whenever I narrowed the search for "shinkai makoto."

Are you ordering from Amazon.jp ?

I just got my book in the mail today and it is very cool.

The book is broken down into sections that cover ...

5 CM per second (about 104 pages)
    Hometown - The street where they meet Chobi, the school
    Railway - Pictures of the trains and the stations that Takaki takes to meet  Akari
    Rencounter - The meeting of Takaki and Akari at the end of Episode 1 and pictures of Episode 2 and Episode 3.

A Place Promised ... ( 34 pages)
    ... General pictures
    Laboratory - Pictures of Sayuri in the Lab

Voices of a Distant Star (11 pages)
    From Here to Eternity - General pictures from the film

Shinano Mainichi Shimbun Television Commercial (4 pages)

4-5 pages that show how the pictures are layered and assembled to create some of the classic images (Takaki an Akari with Chobi)

What looks like 10 pages of interviews with either voice actors/actresses or interviews with Shinkai's team of artists.

My Impression: Very cool book. I would love this to be a larger sized "coffee table" type book with glossier pictures ... some of these images really deserve a larger page with a higher quality presentation.

The book cost about $60 US.

I might do...

How many pictures are on each page? I mean, like, on average. Is there one or two? Or are they each a full page?

It depends ... sometimes a couple sometimes only one. I tried to take a few pics of some of the pages in the book. I'll post those tomorrow so you can get a sense of the size of the book and the picture.
