About Jake Rose


Jake Rose is a native of New York City and a recent graduate of Drew University, here 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.

Jake’s process – and what makes the Color Our Town series so unique – begins with his multiple collaborations with artists from around the world, who take Jake’s own photographs and translate them into exquisite line drawings, each accompanied by Jake’s in-depth historical descriptions.

With Jake’s seventh and newest book, Color NYC Museums, Jake takes the reader on a grand tour of museums widely celebrated and beloved by the general public, as well as those whose walls and contents are only known to the true art aficionado (with a few stops in between).

Jake’s other works include Color Greenport, Color Riverhead, Color Northfork, Color Sag Harbor, Color Upper East Side, and Color Upper West Side.

His journey to document other destinations and landmarks throughout the US continues in 2018, with future coloring book projects that celebrate the myriad of historical and cultural wonders in Brooklyn, Miami and beyond.
