What to do with hand made educational posters for primary school?

I have spent several hundred hours over the last six months creating A2 charts (420X594mm). They are about 50 in total, covering topics taught in Maths in Primary School. They are displayed in the Maths room in my school and I'm proud of the fact that the children constantly refer to them during lessons. I have been told by colleagues and visitors that they are very appealing. Unlike the laminated, commercial posters on the market which are rather tacky, these hand-made posters capture the essence of upper primary topics in very digestible chunks. I would love these posters to have a wider audience. How do I do this? (more inside) [more inside]

How to frame concert posters without "ruining" them?

My boyfriend collects posters from the many concerts he attends. He is averse to using store-bought poster frames because he thinks this will ruin the poster. Is this true? If so, is there a cheaper method to protect the posters than custom mounting and framing for over $100 apiece? [more inside]

Thin screen or tablet for poster presentations

Re-interpret and rock (and roll)

I'm a huge fan of science fiction book cover art (especially the 50s through the 80s) and I like to use ideas from them to make posters for my band. If you need examples: this should explain what I'm looking for. I'm wondering if there are existing resources for science fiction cover art or general science fiction art that mirrors this sort of style and substance? I especially need resources that are fair use, free to modify etc. etc. We use these posters to advertise our shows at places which usually have a cover charge -- so I will need content that I can modify to use "commercially".

How to sell a valuable Grateful Dead poster?

An elderly family friend has an original poster (known as BG074) and program from the 1967 Jefferson Airplane and Grateful Dead concert at the O'Keefe Centre in Toronto. He is interested in selling the poster and program, and I've offered to help out. According to Wolfgang's Vault, "BG074 is among the rarest of posters. There are hard to verify stories that the original cache of posters was confiscated at the Canadian border by border patrol, but whether the posters were seized or simply put away by contented Canadians, this summer concert made a big impression." Accordingly, I've seen auctions and online memorabilia stores listing this poster in the $5,000 and up range, and the program for close to $1,000. What is the best way to authenticate and sell these items? I contacted Wolfgang's Vault but they don't normally purchase individual items, and the art dealers I've been in touch with don't deal with rock memorabilia. Is there a Sotheby's of rock? Is eBay even worth considering?

I want a Celestino Piatti poster -- will this site make me an Unhappy Owl?

I love Celestino Piatti's picture books and art. I'd love to own an original of one of his many posters. Prices on E-Bay tend to be pretty high, but I keep running across a site that claims to have many of Piatti's posters for a reasonable price. I've been tempted many times. But the site is German, and looks too good to be true. Does anyone have any experience with this site or opinion as to its legitimacy? http://www.poster-gallery.com (I promise this is not Pepsi-Blue!). Link to the Piatti posters here. My instinct is "no."

I remember the poster - but which movie was it?

Help me settle a long-running debate by identifying which horror movie had the following poster: A night scene, outdoors, I think moonlit. Hand drawn. In the centre of the poster a girl is running away from the viewer, down a path between two stone walls. Emerging from the walls on both sides are hands which are grabbing out at her. I last saw it around 1986. Any ideas?
