Hajime Sorayama The Gynoids Oversized 1st Ed. Monograph
The Gynoids by Hajime Sorayama oversized monograph published by Taro Kaneda printed in Japan
1st edition 1993.
Sorayama began to produce a series of female robotic figures in the late 1970s; anatomically correct in form, but appearing to have been fashioned of molten silver. The term "sexy robot" was coined to describe them. The term "Gynoids" was created by the female British SF writer Gwyneth Jones. The word is a combination of "droid" (greek "in the image of") and "gyn" (greek "woman").These female cyborgs of Sorayama combine elements both human and mechanical. The soft, sensuous body parts are cleverly intertwined with inorganic, machine-like connections and protrusions to create entrancing images which embody complex and subtle tensions. In other words its insane and very NSFW presented in dramatic, large format pages.
Jacket shows minor bumping and minor crease to one page as pictured otherwise in excellent condition and a must have for any Sorayama fan.
112 pages fully illustrated. 10.5" x 14.5"
