Whether it's a comic book panel or album cover, there's only a finite number of ways you can arrange a canvas.  Naturally, there's going to be some patterns that emerge, and one that has intrigued me for years is the A Frame. From an armchair sociologist's perspective, it's rife with meaning and subliminal interpretations.  Sometimes it means "power" as in the picture above, but sometimes it takes on an altogether different meaning, usually sexual.

If you have any A frame examples you'd like to share, please drop a link in a comment.... or even better, email them to me (only vintage images please).  I have a feeling there will be many more A Frame posts to come.

(this is an album cover BTW)

I think I got this from an issue of Heavy Metal from the eighties
