An Individual, limited edition, example of vinyl record silhouette art made from a genuine, original, 45rpm, 7” single of China In Your Hand from 1987  by T’Pau. Released on the Sire record label this vinyl single has been reworked into the silhouette of a China tea cup and saucer.

China in Your Hand is a song by the British band T’Pau, released from their album Bridge of Spies and is arguably the song for which the group is best known in their native Britain. The lyrics of China in Your Hand refer to the novel Frankenstein and its author Mary Shelley. The song’s title was more unclear however and when quizzed, co-writer Ron Rogers was unsure of its source material. Lyric writer Carol Decker explained that it is the effect that if you hold a china cup to a light, you can see your hand through it – therefore ‘china in your hand’ means something that is transparent

    Perfectly framed and well presented with a blue backing which makes it all pop. This is one of my favourite songs and the design is perfect.
