This is a place where you can blog your mail art which went missing.  It will give us an idea of: 

1) How many Mail Art pieces go missing 

2) Types of Mail Art pieces which go missing 

3) Which countries were involved   

It will also be a way for the "would be recipient" and the rest of us to see what you sent.  

Awards & competitions to be announced at a later date!

This is a March 2016 ground for a lost Add&Pass Boekie on an altered advertising pamphlet. I was working with very basic materials except for vintage images sent to me from David Stafford's famous stash. The A&C-style is pretty overwhelming, but Minneapolis Gnome and Grace Sanford contributed, and after that, RIP boekie!

Posted in June but apparently lost in the system . . .

I think this envelope will probably end up here.  I did it for the 10th Fake stamp Day and the 'rules' were that no real stamp could be attached.  I'm pretty certain it will never leave these sceptered isles!  Pity really as I think it might be one of my more successful jobs . . .

This went out last month but I seem to have got the address wrong so I guess it is lost . . . sorry Jack!

This is not 'lost' but might have been;  I used an out of date address so if it had made it to the postbox it would have just slipped beneath the waves of the great eternal network ocean . . .

Just discovered this group courtesy of res' post. How sad! Perhaps a lot of it has drifted off and up into the aether...

Hey Dean,did you get the record I mailed to you? I FORGOT to take a picture of it!

Hands Free sent to PATRICIA LANDON in USA on 13 January 2016.

It never arrived.  Poor handling I guess.

Better luck next time.

An After Eight that went too far.  I sent this "as is" on 17 Dec 2014 to Laurence Gillot in France.I guess the post person eight it!

Once upon a time, I sent a copy of Richard Baudet's "Green Tube" to Yuri,

in the hope that he can trace it through the US Post...

but seems to be no luck so far.

Yuri did send a very nice "thank you"...
