How To Display Unusually Sized Poster?

Good Questions

Q: I have a poster that I bought at an event a few years ago. It has a print of some of the most beautiful, intricately detailed art and I would really love to display it. However, it is 5 feet long by about 2 1/2 feet tall, so there is no way I will ever be able to afford to frame it, nor would it really make sense to do so.

I really want to put it up, but I don't want it to feel like it's tacked up on the wall like a poster in a dorm room. I had thought of painting slats of wood and affixing them to the outside of the poster to appear frame-like, but I would really love some different suggestions. There is finally a spot for it, and it deserves to be seen!
