About Color Our Town
The brains behind Color Our Town is Jake Rose, a lifelong resident of New York City and a recent graduate of Drew University, where he majored in history and minored in American studies.
Through his passion for architecture and photography, Jake was inspired to create the Color Our Town series of coloring books depicting the beauty and unique character of neighborhoods and small towns across America through their recognizable locales and historic landmarks.
What makes the Color Our Town series so unique is the collaboration with artists from around the world using Jake’s own photographs that are translated into exquisite line drawings, each accompanied by Jake's in-depth historical descriptions.
With Jake's seventh book, Color NYC Museums, Jake takes you on a grand tour of museums that you already know, might know, and probably ones you never heard of. Books already published include Color Greenport, Color Riverhead, Color Northfork, Color Sag Harbor, Color Upper East Side, and Color Upper West Side.
The journey continues as he plans on pursuing his journey through the United States, with the next stops including Brooklyn, NY & Miami, Florida.
