Gift pick No. 41: Ink and Smog Editions' neighborhood postcards

Love L.A.? Rosemary Dardick and Robin Belcher celebrate the city with linocuts of neighborhood sights such as the Highland Theatre in Highland Park, the Helms Bakery in Culver City or the Norms sign in Santa Monica. 

HANDMADE HOLIDAYS: More gift picks

Working under the name Ink and Smog Editions, the couple draw and cut their designs, then print them using a bottle-jack press they built themselves in their Koreatown living room. (You can see a photo of the contraption on their Kickstarter page, which announces the pending arrival of their 1960s letterpress and industrial paper cutter.)

The neighborhood postcards sell in sets of eight for $12 on the Ink and Smog Editions shop on Etsy. The good news for local procrastinators: The artwork also is sold in some brick-and-mortar shops including Lula Mae in Pasadena, Pygmy Hippo Shoppe in the Fairfax district of Los Angeles, Urban Radish in the Arts district downtown and Vintage Galeria on Olvera Street.
