Very interesting piece this!
Matthew Swanson and Robbi Behr are idiots. No, really — the couple after bidding a Steven Slater-esque adieu to their previous careers as graphic designers founded Idiots’ Books, an independent press run out of their Maryland barn. There they live, work and raise two children. Swanson writes and Behr illustrates, and together they distribute their snide, satirical works through a bimonthly subscription service. Titles include “The Baby Is Disappointing,” a sarcastic paean to parenting, and “Facial Features of French Explorers,” a microanalysis of the craniofacial quirks of adventurers like Samuel de Champlain. They also maintain a blog about their lives.
