This Launch Pad blank journal features a design by Evelyn Ackerman. Los Angeles designers Evelyn and Jerome Ackerman founded the company ERA Industries, which integrated global craft with modern aesthetics to create richly textured handmade products. They set up workshops in traditional craft centers across several continents, including mosaic and textile ateliers in Mexico. Inspired by the first moonwalk, the vibrant Launch Pad, designed in 1970, was the largest weaving available from the line, reaching the physical limit of the looms.
LACMA has three works in its permanent collection by Evelyn Ackerman (United States, 1924–2012) or Jerome Ackerman (United States, b. 1920).
