Readers enact their understanding of the books through cosplay, music, art, or even through food and drink. Line up any ten fans dressed as the Dragon Reborn, and while there may be some similarities, no two are the same. Wheel of Time-inspired art ranges from elegant, elaborate fantasy creations to simple stick figures. Individual taste and perspective guides the way artists approach their craft and the way in which viewers assess the result. One can glory in the art of Michelangelo, whose realistic depictions of the human form captured every nuance precisely, yet also delight in Marc Chagall, whose folk-art style featured casually drawn people and cows seen floating in colorful skies. One artist a genius whose technical skills were flawless; the other recreating the art of the people for a totally different purpose and effect. My own style comes from the folk art of Pysanky, the intricately decorated eggs often displayed at Easter-time. Pysanky (a word derived from the Ukrainian word “to write”) are created using a wax-and-dye resist process similar to batik, though on eggshell instead of cloth. Pysanky also convey language, both in the symbols used and the colors of dye incorporated in their design. And while precision is used to create designs, the eggs are also handwritten. As with any type of handwriting, character and distinctiveness is conveyed by the imperfections inherent in this means of communication: loops are not always closed, and sometimes a “t “ isn’t crossed or an “i” dotted. Most coloring books on the market today are computer-generated or aided, and by their very nature they are flawless. By contrast, my Wheel of Time coloring art book Patterns of the Wheel uses a more spontaneous style to convey the moods and meanings of images from the Wheel of Time. This book includes a key to help decipher meanings of some of the symbols used in the designs. Additionally, hidden in many of the images are words written in Old Tongue script, which those interested can decode from resources online or from The Wheel of Time Companion. To give a brief example of how a design can be decoded, take a look at “Patterns of the Wheel”, a page from the coloring book (which is also the art on the cover of the book). When creating my version of the snake and wheel, I wanted to incorporate symbols relevant to the story. Prominent throughout the design is a symbol called “wolves’ teeth”, depicting friendship, loyalty, and wisdom. The lower wheel consists of two sets of wolves’ teeth, seven in each set, echoing off the seven spokes of the wheel, the seven pine needles (for strength and stamina, as well as health), and calling to mind the seven Ajahs. Likewise, each of the upper circles have also been divided into seven major segments. There are triangles (which are said to enclose wishes) but which also represent a trinity, in this case, the three ta’veren; crosses for crossroads of life and four corners of the world; curls for protection; waves for safety in travels; netting for keeping close or gathering in of forces; ladders/parallel lines for the ascension of hopes; and even a bit of foliage to help fight the Blight. And that’s just for starters.

    Pretty cute coloring book for fans of the WOT series. Some of the drawings are not as detailed as I expected them to be with a rich fantasy series to pull inspiration from. But overall I think the coloring book is a nice little addition to my WOT shelf.

While marketed as an adult coloring book, the black-and-white images and quoted selections from Jordan’s novels are certainly suitable for all ages, though the designs lack the level of finesse I would expect from an officially-sanctioned product associated with a beloved epic fantasy series on the level of THE WHEEL OF TIME, and the connections between Jordan’s prose and Romanczuk’s art is sometimes tenuous. 10-25-2016-patterns-of-the-wheel-2Patterns of the Wheel begins with a glowing Foreword from Harriet McDougal, Jordan’s widow and the editor of most of the WHEEL OF TIME series, followed by Ellissa Mitchell’s painstakingly detailed original map included in the novels, and then a glossary of pysanky symbols and their significance. The coloring book itself is structured so that the left-hand page features a brief quote from one of Jordan’s novels and the right-hand page contains Romanczuk’s design: sometimes a repeating mandala or boxed patterns, sometimes an item, and sometimes abstract intersecting lines. The majority of the quoted material comes from The Eye of the World and The Dragon Reborn, but most (though not all) of the other books in the series are featured at least once....2.5 stars from Jana, read the full review at FANTASY LITERATURE

    I won this book in a Goodreads giveaway. I was very excited to win this book. Some of the drawings were beautiful and intricate; some, however, were much more childish in style and content. I will still enjoy the book, but was hoping for entirely detailed pages.
