Christopher Tolkien's marginal note:

"What's the point of all this pedantry if you can't get a detail like this right?"

I think I want this on a t-shirt.

Will this do?

https://store.tolkienguide.com/listing/pedantry (black text for light colored shirts)

https://store.tolkienguide.com/listing/pedantry-white-text (white text for dark colored shirts)

I have ordered a sample to make sure everything looks good (the store image is low resolution and I want to make sure the text prints cleanly).

Do you not need a permission to make merchandise using someone's signature?

A good point, yes I should. I'll ask before anyone orders any (and I fully expect to get told no).
