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.

Fair enough.

Worth saying that colours absolutely can be trademarks (though in this case, not). Cadbury's for instance has trademarked the colour purple with regards to confectionary.

True in the colours, but for book jackets the claimant would have to show that they were the first/only to use that colour. 😅

I’ll make a pair that say HoMe tomorrow as well, so both types will be available.

I’ve never wanted to buy the original HoMe books as individuals, so I may just buy the mug instead 😁. Nice idea to do.

OK, the store is updated with all four variants I think I will be doing - HOME and HoMe for UK and US colo(u)r schemes. Have at!

I like the HoMe a lot more - probably would invite more questions from anyone in proximity to said mug, as well (of course that may not be a good thing, depending on how interested they are in learning about a remarkably strange 12 volume literary adventure).
