It came from Japan (not meant to be sarcastic), that's where I purchased it.But it was Machina and his legendary internet searching skills that actually tracked one down that was for sale, and helped with the purchasing formalities.

There are also websites that will act as an intermediary for people who want to buy things from Japanese sellers that don't speak English or ship overseas (e.g. eBay auctions).[Happosai]

I'm sure it wasn't cheap. I remember an internet auction some years ago that had a remarkable opening bid.

Then you've got to factor in getting a company to scan the book.Well, I'm grateful for having got to see it!

I don't get why half the book is in B&W, but I'm working on custom profile pages and am thus colorizing some of them:Is it perfect? No, but it's better than in B&WIf anyone has any of the profiles from other magazines in color, please help me out.

How do you do that? Is it a manual process or is there an automatic way like you see them do with old film? - (how they extract colour information from B/W film that's not visible to the naked eye).
