Buy an awesome box of Satoshi Kon's artwork

Miss the late, great Satoshi Kon? I do, too. But if you've got some yen to burn, maybe you can get yourself a lovingly crafted (and prohibitively expensive) collection of his art.

The functionally-named Satoshi Kon Art Works BOX is a 64-piece collection of illustrations from the luminary behind the likes of Paprika and Tokyo Godfathers. It comes in a great-looking box that can double as a frame for a favorite illustration, and includes four pages of Kon's personal descriptions of each piece, with such details as the intended idea, methods, and techniques used.

How much will this better-than-an-artbook artbook cost, you ask? Approximately 29,400 yen (about $381). It's a pretty penny, to be sure, but look at that samurai rabbit! Check it out the collection on this page.
