We Knew Them When: Idiots’Books on

I suppose it was inevitable that the world would discover them eventually: hometown heroes Idiots’Books—Robbi Behr and Matthew Swanson, whose work on these pages includes the gloriously weird One Page Wonders, “How Is Like (And Not Like) Your Average Two-Year-Old,” and a series of eighty-one (!) illustrations for our edition of Cory Doctorow’s Makers—are the primary subjects (a.k.a. human guinea pigs) of Joshua Wolf Shenk’s Creative Pairs, a series of articles about the nature of collaboration from the illustrious Slate Magazine.

If you’re ready to become an Idiots’Fanperson, consider starting with the glorious Ten Thousand Stories, or the mind-boggling Six Degrees of Francis Bacon, or even with a blog post about their curiously undisappointing children. And, of course: stay tuned, for it is utterly impossible to predict what these Idiots might do next.
