Literature Lovers Mug
A quote from C.S. Lewis, “You can’t get a cup of tea big enough or a book long enough to suit me.” followed by the list of the top fantasy and science fiction authors of all time. The authors were compiled by members of the Middle-earth Network. The coffee mug was designed using borders & fonts from William Morris, who was a profound influence on J.R.R. Tolkien & C.S. Lewis as well as many fantasy writers that followed. Morris was also one of the driving forces behind the ‘Arts & Crafts’ movement that took place during the 1800′s. A great way to show off your literary tastes!
This is the verdure with Deer and Shields panel from the tapestry designed by William Morris and Edward Burnes Jones. The Holy Grail or San Graal tapestries are a set of six tapestries depicting scenes from the legend of King Arthur and the quest for the Holy Grail commissioned from Morris & Co. by William Knox D’Arcy in 1890 for his dining room at Stanmore Hall, outside London.
The caption reads “these are the arms of certain knights of the round table bidden to seek the sangreal who departed on the quest whatever might befal but of those that thus departed these are the chiefest. sir gawaine of orkney. sir lancelot. sir hector de maris. sir bors. sir percival. and sir galahd.”
The subject matter is based on the 15th century text Le Morte D’Arthur (The Death of Arthur) by Sir Thomas Malory. It tells the story of the spiritual quest by the knights of King Arthur’s round table for the Holy Grail, the cup from which Jesus and the disciples drank at the Last Supper. A verdure is a type of tapestry that represents plants or wooded landscapes, sometimes with birds or animals. They (verdures) were produced in Northern Europe from the Middle Ages to the 18th century.

The NEW MyMiddle-earth Market is up and running with new payment options, new products and an easier-to-use and friendlier shopping experience! And guess what, you don’t have to use PayPal anymore! Quite a few of you had expressed interest in alternative methods of payment and we were actually paying attention so the new store accepts all major credit cards and paypal.
The “old” store (i.e. here) will stay as a blog where you can keep up on the latest news, products, deals and special promotions.
An important note: Our store, while carrying our logo, name and products is a separate website from the network of websites here at MyMiddle-earth. You may register at the MyMiddle-earth Market but your user id and registration there is entirely separate from your user id and registration here at MyMiddle-earth.
Also, we have even more exciting marketplace news coming your way in the next few weeks…
We’re in the process of building a new online store!
While we get the new store set up, our current store at store.mymiddleearth.com will be off-line until further notice.
Check back soon though as we’ll be unveiling the new store, with a lot of new features and payment options and most importantly a slew of new products coming in the very near future!
If you haven’t already taken our store product poll, please do so and let us know what products you would like to see. Keep an eye on this site for ongoing product and store announcements!
We’re going to be bringing a number of products to the MyMiddle-earth Store in the upcoming weeks and months and would like to get an idea what you would like to see? Please vote in the below polls (you can make multiple selections) or if you have in mind something not listed here let us know in the comments or send us a suggestion.
Poster art from renowned artist Jef Murray’s The Third Age – The Tolkien inspired collection of paintings!
NOW AVAILABLE TO ORDER!!!!!!
I spent Saturday in the Westfarthing. I met Mithrandir on the East Road, and we wended our way across The Water and up The Hill. Bilbo was bustling at Bag End, popping corks and stoking embers, and I begged leave to sketch the two scoundrels by the blaze of the drawing room hearth. Whilst I painted, we traded tales and tippled tea as, without, the gusty fall winds wailed.
Jef Murray is an internationally known artist and essayist whose works can be found in various fantasy publications and calendars distributed worldwide. Oloris Publishing is the independent publishing arm of Middle-earth Network.
