These days the internet is full of creative people ready and willing to make extremely cool things for fans to collect and display. But for fans of older series (especially in books, less so for TV shows and movies), the lack of the internet in the early days of a series has resulted in a sometimes missing online community of creators. This definitely applies to the art of the wheel of time. The series started on release in 1990 and ended in 2013 (you can find me lyrical here).
For anyone reading Jordan’s books in the early 1990s, there was no internet to look at and collect. When I first read the series, I was not aware of any explosive fandom of creators. Instead, I’ve carefully scoured the internet to collect the chapter icons and summaries, fan art, and drawn maps, and keep them all lovingly in a small plastic bag, Wheel of Time Joy’s personal reference library.

When I emigrated in 2015 this plastic bag was left behind with all of my beloved books – but I still remember it as the first fandom I really fell in love with and it was a pleasure to see that there are now some brilliant ones Creative people bring it to life on more than just printer paper.
So here we have it, a smorgasbord of art and goods from the wheel of time to ease your wallet. Nynaeve herself would be impressed.
The wheel of time Art, gifts, jewelry and patches
I had about five copies of the Wheel of Time Westlands map, which were secretly printed in color when my parents weren’t looking. This version is much nicer – and requires less secrecy. $ 44.
This map of Caemlyn is modeled after the beloved drawings in Jordan’s early reference book. The attention to detail in laser engraving is incredible, and the manufacturer has several other cities to choose from as well. $ 60.
I would have committed small crimes to control this when I first read the series – a first edition of The World of Robert Jordan’s The Wheel of Time. I finally managed to get a very torn version with the pages hanging out and I still appreciate it. $ 156.
This Wheel of Time tea box has something very cottage-core about it. $ 67.
The original joy of reading the series has been enhanced by the incredible fan art, and this is no exception. This print from The Dragon Reborn is one of my new favorites. $ 59.
If you’re a gamer, you probably appreciate Mat’s approach to life. Especially beautiful are these dice boxes with words engraved on them that mean it’s time to throw the dice. $ 83.
I can’t think of a fan who doesn’t want a Great Serpent ring of their own, and this one is downright adorable. $ 102.
I am impressed with a sudden desire to dig up all of my Wheel of Time books, put them on a shelf, and place those amazing wooden Wheel of Time bookends on either end. Perfection. $ 67.
These spots show the ajah colors surrounded by the great serpent. Imagine them on the back of a denim jacket. Yes, please. $ 9.60.
Some creators are incredibly talented, and these handcrafted Ajah-inspired mugs are absolutely gorgeous. $ 60.
Honestly, my main problem with these Chapter Icon Coasters is deciding which one I don’t want. $ 4.90.
Our three Ta’veren, Rand, Mat and Perrin, in 8×10 print in Japanese calligraphy style. This is a brilliant example of the art of the Wheel of Time character – my wall longs for all three. $ 37.
This National Park-themed Wheel of Time map is great novelty, especially if you’re a cartography lover. $ 36.
These character prints (Rand, Mat, Perrin, Lan, and Moiraine) are delightfully colorful and the use of iconography is creativity of the highest quality. $ 57.
Perler Bead 16-bit versions of all of your favorite Wheel of Time characters. These deserve collecting. $ 6 each.
A wheel of time art just knocks me out, and this modern version of Mat’s dice is a new obsession for me. Clean and Sharp. Digital download $ 5.65.
This Dragon’s Fang coaster is undeniably beautiful. $ 6.
