AJJ has a beautiful portfolio but why are women’s heads always getting cut off on Kinfolk’s covers?? The men are always full-headed, but the women…have hit the glass-print ceiling.

I don’t usually troll the internet, but when I do, I do it for the ladies.

I adore her so much…

Nice work by Amanda, the hand bags are designed so simply but are very attractive. Beau I thinks its become a trend that womens on cover are usually printed half hadded, in my poin of view it looks attractive.

@beau : Maybe I’m being too nice, but since cutting the head is clearly an aesthetic choice (easy or not, I couldn’t say), I wonder if the male heads are not left whole only because the male figure works less well than the female one with the eyes and forehead taken off.
There’s no real aesthetic ground behind this theory, but it feels to me that it happened in that order (“I made an artistic choice and had to sacrifice it when putting men on the cover”) than the other way around (“I like whole figures but feel like female ones deserve cropping”).
