Original Morristown Note Cards for Sale

Original Morristown Note Cards for Sale
How do people in Morristown view the world? Certainly dominated by the Green, Courthouse and other town landmarks, right? The late, Morristown-based artist Carolyn Meeker tried her best to create such a vision - in Saul Steinberg’s New Yorker cover art fashion - which faithfully re-creates many of the notable buildings in town from Headquarters Plaza and St. Peter’s Episcopal Church to the Morristown Hospital and even the library! Sets of eight, 5x7 notecards and envelopes are $10.00 each and are available at the Circulation (main level) and History Center (lower level) desks.

Meeker also did prints of her work, which were also donated to the library. The framed prints will be prizes as part of contests on Facebook and via the library’s website and e-mail newsletter in 2014. So stay tuned for announcements on those contests.

The Morristown & Morris Township Library is grateful to Carolyn's estate for continuing her commitment to financially supporting the library. All proceeds received through this sale of her prints and cards will benefit library operations, programming and activities.

For more information, please contact the Main Library Circulation Department desk at (973) 538-6161; info@jfpl.org or the Library’s North Jersey History & Genealogy reference desk at (973) 538-3473; njhgc@jfpl.org.

About the Artist:

Carolyn Meeker lived in Morristown for over 30 years and was an enthusiastic member of the community. She enjoyed participating in a wide variety of activities around town and was often found at area theaters, both as an audience member and as a volunteer. She also was known for enjoying the intellectual stimulation and socialization found through a good game of Scrabble and participated in formal Scrabble groups and tournaments.

But perhaps most of all, she was known as an accomplished artist and creator of Adam & Eve Ink, Design and Art, in Morristown. Her iconic "view of the world from Morristown" features tiny drawings of the town's most famous sites and memorable landmarks in a way that whimsically reflects her affection for and knowledge of the community.

With her framed prints and cards, residents enjoy having a unique piece of art with which they can brighten a spot in their home or office and share with others the singular spirit and environment that is Morristown. Carolyn passed away in 2011.
