This collection of "abandoned letterhead" was assembled with Maia Asshaq for the Detroit Design Festival. At the time, we wrote, "Unused letterhead — paper that never met its full potential — is a kind of melancholic 'pre-document'. In fact, because it bears out-of-date information it is rendered nearly useless. Its best hope is to be used as scrap paper or to be recycled. At the Center for Abandoned Letterhead we have collected paper from Detroit area businesses and organizations that have moved, changed their identities, or closed."
The Center for Abandoned Letterhead traveled to exhibitions at the School of Art Institute of Chicago, the Brno Biennial, and Galerie Daviet-Thery, in Paris.
