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!

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

It never arrived.  Poor handling I guess.

Better luck next time.

Probably this envelope with an ATC inside was lost.

I was trying something there but just went too far.

Hand gilded envelope.

Sorry Keith S. Chambers... I'll try and find a picture of the ATC that was inside.

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"...

Sent to Raphael Elle in France.  This one was never seen again.I'm not having a lot of luck with vinyl records.But I will still turn them out.

Oh No! that is a beauty, Richard...framed green tube of paint!

However, it looks like your wonderful calligraphy was not read

by the US Postal machines perhaps? "Elizabeth" is too lovely

for a digital machine to understand... sigh.

However, we can take action!

I am going to write the Postal Recovery Center in Atlanta , Georgia,

and send in a "PS Form 1510"...along with a scan of this mail art.

If they don't find it, perhaps the "NIXIES" in Salt Lake City, Utah will.

Those NIXIES are super heroes of the US Post Office!

After 2 months, they returned "lost" mail back to me :
