Great news for Ackerman fans

I received an email today from Laura Ackerman-Shaw, daughter of Jerome and Evelyn Ackerman. She wanted all of you to know that the book about her parents entitled Hand-in-Hand, which was released at the end of October by Pointed Leaf Press, has just been named by the LA Times as the top gift book for design lovers.

Also, on Valentine's Day 2015, a special event will be held during Palm Springs Modernism Week to celebrate the lives and work of the Ackermans. Both Jerome and Laura will be there, and it promises to be something quite wonderful, including a panel discussion, a lecture and slideshow, and a book signing. Most importantly, there will be an exhibition of representative Ackerman pieces.

Hand-in-Hand has just been put at the top of my hint list for Christmas. I know you'll enjoy seeing a preview of the book, and you may want to add it to one of your lists too, either for yourself or for some special modernist lover in your life.
