Display of 50-Plus Chick Tracts?

Good Questions

Q: Hi Apartment Therapy! My boyfriend and I are decorating our first condo. I'm not much with the art budget, so I've been trying to reconsider "stuff" we were storing as pieces we've been curating: my costume wigs, his vintage gas masks. Putting them on display has helped the place feel fun and personal. Oh, and it's pretty much free. One such thing is his collection of chick tracts:

I thought of buying/making cheap glass clip frames, but I worry that hanging 50+ tiny items (or even most of them) is madness and doomed to failure. Maybe a few large frames with multiple opening mats that I cut? How should we display them?

I'm thinking of our bathroom wall, where folks might enjoy having something to read. Our staircase is also badly in need of interest.

Caveat: no chick tracts may be harmed in the making of this art!
