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.
In his two newest books, Color Philadelphia & Color Historic Philadelphia, Jake takes you on a grand tour of the special wonders of these magnificent locales. Learn about and color the wonderful places in Philadelphia that you already know, might know, and probably ones you have never heard of.
Jake is a native New Yorker who also summers on the North Fork in Greenport, Long Island.
Jake's Published Collections include:
Color NYC Landmarks, NYC Museums, Central Park, Greenwich Village,
Upper West Side, Color Upper East Side, and Brooklyn.
Color The Hamptons, Sag Harbor, and East Hampton.
Color Philadelphia, and Historic Philadelphia.
Color Miami and Miami Beach Art Deco
Upcoming books in the works include Montauk and Southampton, New York, and plans are in the works to visit other cities across the country like Austin, Texas.
Custom books and notecards are now available as well.
