History of Middle-earth mug design

I had a vision this morning when making coffee, so I threw together this mug design - the twelve colour bands are the original UK History of Middle-earth spines (but it isn't too geeky to be seen with outside of Tolkien collecting circles ?)

I hope you like it as much as I do! Available for purchase at the TolkienGuide merch store.

This is amazing - and I love the US demanding its own colour scheme as it should be

I think these would look great with the correct publishers logo added to the bottom of each stripe (and maybe HoME or HoMe, so as to have not saying the word "Home").

Both of those were intentional design choices.

Publisher logos are trademarks, colours are not. “HOME” looks nice, and can’t be claimed either.

Just my choices, not that I had to.
