The Lord of the Rings Towels (Tolkien Enterprises/Cannon Mills, 1978)

LOTR Towels

LOTR Towels-2

By the same company that made the comforter. The second towel looks pretty faded. Possibly the inspiration for the 1982 AD&D Beach Towels?

I’m sure a lot of the researchers would be intrigued to know that these nerdy towels got made at the same place where they’re doing experiments, and reading fantasy on their lunch breaks.
