Hajime Sorayama - Lot with 2 books: Sexy Robot & Hajime Sorayama - 1983/1989
Art, Erotica - Quantity: 2 - Book

Hajime Sorayama is a Japanese illustrator known for his precisely detailed, erotic portrayals of feminine robots, along with his design work on the original Sony AIBO. He describes his highly detailed style as "superrealism", which he says "deals with the technical issue of how close one can get to one's object."

Modern English-language editions of Soryama's art books give his name as Hajime Sorayama, using conventional Western order, with given name followed by surname. Some older publications give his name as Sorayama Hajime, using native Japanese name order, which reverses Western order.
