Summary
These are the stories behind some of the greatest losses to artistic culture, including some works which have never even existed. Read about the 'ghost story' of Joyce's poem 'Et Tu, Healy', written when he was nine, which then disappeared without a trace, as well as how a long-lost document led a desperate forger to plant bombs, and how the most extravagant book binding ever made sank with the Titanic. All of these losses raise greater questions about our relationship with art
