Re: mounting issues
3M makes a positional mounting adhesive. Check out http://
adhesive.asp I've seen it used for regular prints and it should work
for alt process prints too.

Why not get some archival 2-sided tape... it's expensive
(relatively) -- I bought a roll about 1/3 inch wide & reasonably
long at Grand Central Artists' Materials a while back... Something
like $12 (maybe more, memory does not serve) for a roll
reminiscent of "scotch tape" seemed steep, but the stuff is
terrific. Very strong (moreso I imagine if you burnish it down
with finger or tool), and as far as I can tell so far, doesn't dry
out or give up. Also, to economize, you don't need to run it the
entire length of each edge... depending on the thickness and
"spring" of the paper, and of course the size -- you can do
corners and sections.
I don't know offhand the maker's name, but can check if you need it.
HOWEVER, if you change your mind and want to remove the print, you
may run into trouble... Offhand, I'd think a solvent would be
requived (lacquer thinner maybe?). You can perhaps peel the print
off slowly and verrrry carefully, but I wouldn't take a chance.
Odds are good back of the print would tear.
