I had a very hard time finding cards (other than plastic postcards for tourists) in Israel. Then one day I was asking a shop girl about it and she said "There's not really a market for that here, but the store owner collaborates with an artist to make some of her own cards." I am so glad I asked! I think paper goods are such a good souvenir to buy because they are lightweight and travel really easy. Plus, this isn't something I'm going to find in a US shop. I got one of each they had. Aren't they funny? Some made me laugh out loud.
These are the makers of these cards/prints. I am framing them for my studio.
