Best way to display postcards?

Interior design filter: We have a bunch (15-20) of cool postcards that we'd like to display. In our old apartment, there was a narrow (maybe 20") wall next to our desks that worked really well to "frame" the postcard collection, but in our new apartment, our only viable wall is like 20 feet long, which makes it look weird to put up a handful of postcards. Assuming that we are neither crafty nor inclined to spend tons of money (no custom framing), what's the best way to show off our postcards? Something nicer-looking than a bulletin board would be good.

The ceiling above the ceiling

When and how did exposed ductwork along the ceiling become "a thing" in interior design for restaurants and shops? I'm fairly certain you didn't see this sort of modern touch in the 1950's, so something happened between then and now where this became more common and I'm really curious as to how it came about. Any interior design/architecture buffs out there know the answer?

The (gl)ass ceiling

How can I take advantage of my office ceiling? I have a fairly small office, but recessed bookcases run around two of the four walls to about 10 feet high, and the ceiling is about 12-13 feet high. I like the high ceiling as is, but can't help thinking that I should be hanging something kick-ass like a pterodactyl. Or a dirigible. Specific links would be wonderful. Thanks! [more inside]

How would you make a scaled plan of photo/art frames and the wall to organize a plan of attack for drilling/mounting?

I've got a ton of picture frames big and small that I want to hang in my living room all at once on one big wall and want to plan out their layout before drilling. Is Sketchup a good tool to use? Or what/how would you do a scaled plan of the frames and the wall to lay them out in a certain order? Tetris for mounting pictures.
