I have a feeling that silk scarves printed with NASA satellite and Hubble images are a thing that some of you might need, in a “shut up and take my money” way.

Check ‘em out at Slow Factory.

Here are some more maps to help you out with this week’s readings. They’re all excerpts from Karen Wynn Fonstad’s Atlas of Middle Earth, which I highly recommend you check out.

As usual, the first map shows this week’s area in the greater context of Middle Earth. The second map is a close-up look of the general region covered in this week’s readings - Rohan and Gondor. The next two maps are specifically of Minas Tirith. This will help you visualize the city (which is pretty important, since we’ll be here for a while.) Finally, the last map focuses on Dunharrow and the Paths of the Dead, to help visualize that part of the story. :)
