Decor Ideas Using Old Music Magazines?

Good Questions

Q: I recently came into possession of 3 compendiums of the UK magazine 'The Story of Pop' from the early 70s. They are full of hundreds of amazing photos and articles about some of the greatest musicians of the last 70 years, and I want to put them to good use in the home. However, I need inspiration. Do any of you Apartment Therapy folks have any ideas?

The best I have come up with is to cut and frame full page photos/articles, and for the rest either make a table top, or create a feature wall in a room by cutting and pasting to the wall somehow, like a very bespoke wallpaper. I am worried that the latter will look a little like a teenager's bedroom though!

Any help much appreciated!
