I got my copy through Amazon.jp (cost around £40 with shipping >.<) and luckily it arrived a day or so before Shinkai's appearance at the BFI Anime event last year... and how gutted was I to see that the BFI Shop had ordered in a batch of the books to tie in with the screening of 5cm and Place Promised... and were selling them for about £25 >.<

Ah well... at least I was able to get it signed by the man himself. ^_^

Such a pity though that the publishers didn't take the opportunity to make the book larger, that gorgeous artwork deserved to be much bigger - a couple of friends and I were contemplating buying 2 copies so one could be 'converted' into framed pictures to hang on the wall, but the small size of the book meant that wasn't really feasible *sigh*.
