On office walls, we used to display photos and posters with the aid of yellow gummy stuff or with special squares of poster-mounting tape found during raids of the office supply cabinet. The assemblage of pictures and a few clippings on the walls looked okay—for a college dormitory. More recently, we have had the need to remove items from an office wall (either for a new coat of paint or for a move to a new space); and in the process, we discovered that a more enduring display of materials improves the overall look of an office wall. Specifically, framing a photo from the High Sierras or the picture of a loved one not only frees us from the need for that yellow gum, but also gives a new perspective and brings a new importance to the image. The frame improves the image and sets it apart from the background, distinguishing it clearly from the other pieces on the wall.
