Help me hang my posters please

I have a large and beloved collection of People's History
posters. Last year I had them mounted on thin foamcore (thinness illustrated here
), thinking that would lengthen their lives, but I cannot keep them on my walls.

So far I've tried two systems: 1) I put small nails above and below the posters, holding them in place between the nails
. When the weather changed, almost all the posters shrunk or warped a bit, and dramatically fell from the walls. Next, I tried 2) these circles that spike into the foam (like these
), and they still inexplicably just fall off the wall, leaving the spikes attached to the wall.
So, what's the best, affordable way to attach these fairly lightweight posters, without excessively scarring my rented walls?
