Through his passion for architecture and photography, Jake Rose was inspired to create the Color Our Town series of coloring books depicting the beauty and unique character of big cities and small towns across America through their recognizable locales and historic landmarks.

What makes this series so unique is the collaboration Jake has with artists from around the world using his own photographs that are translated into exquisite line drawings, each accompanied by his in-depth historical descriptions.

Jake is a native New Yorker who also summers on the North Fork in Greenport, Long Island.
