The Launch Pad  80-page journal features a 1970 tapestry design by Evelyn Ackerman that is featured in the exhibition “Found in Translation: Design in California and Mexico, 1915-1985.” 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 was the largest weaving available from the line, reaching the physical limit of the looms.
