Oubey Mindkiss

Sagmeister Inc., New York, New York, 2009


This lavish publication introducing the art of the late German artist Oubey was designed as five distinct books. These books are contained in a fractal white slipcase, reflecting Oubey’s formal interest in the sciences.

Juror Notes

Love it or lump it, this was the strangest package I saw in two full days of witnessing strange packaging. There was some disagreement over the efficacy of the design, but ultimately we decided it would be wrong to deny a wider audience the wonder and shock of discovering this book for themselves.
