Sorayama is a catalog compiling works by Japanese artist Hajime Sorayama, known for his unique drawing style and depiction of the fusion between man and machine. The monograph contains a variety of works from his earliest to his most recent creations, and showcases his artistic evolution over the years, including famous series of works such as his Sexy Robots. It was published by Hioshina in a Normal and a Special Edition. The latter comes in an aluminum relief box.
The choice of typography is in keeping with Sorayama’s retro-futuristic spirit. The simple and minimal cover shows only the artist’s name in Microgramma larga, or Medium Extended – a typeface dating back to 1952 but which may have embodied a certain futurism in the 1970s and 1980s.
