Eduardo Garcia Benito Limited Edition Beach Towel

Just a couple of works I adore by Spanish artist Eduardo Garcia Benito.
1929
This first one was done for Vanity Fair and graced the cover in 1929. So Art Deco and so clean, and you know I just adore the subject matter.

This one was the cover for Vogue on July 15, 1926. And guess what? It could be yours for a mere $450.00 as a beach towel!

Vogue has reproduced this in a limited edition beach towel in collaboration with luxury linen purveyor D. Porthault in commemoration of 120 years of Vogue. 45" x 69".

Would you buy it? And if so, how would you use it?
