I am a Macoto fan, I really love his works and his drawings enchant me. I also love rococo period art. However I'm not much a fan of posters because of the damages it makes to the wall, and the picture itself when you try and tear it down. So I was wondering if It would be possible for me to frame the prints some way? I don't own any art books with Rococo paintings, or any of Macoto's books, sadly. So I would most likely be taking the scans and having them blown up some where (Like Kinkos?) And then taking those blown up prints to be framed.
I want to know if this is possible? Has anyone else done this? How did it turn out? Thanks so much!

This may or may not be an issue. But Kinko's my have a copyright fit and not enlarge the scans. Ask them, I may be wrong. Have you been to www.allposters.com? You can buy prints there & frame them. I don't know if they have Macoto prints, but they have lots of art prints available.
I would suggest looking online for the prints, like sarhaclembys said, and then going to an arts & crafts store and picking out a frame and mat that fits what you're looking for.
Be prepared to pay a good bit to have it framed if it isn't a standard size they already have in stock. When I had my artwork matted and framed it cost me more than I thought it would.
I would also suggest actually buying a poster/print of the image and then framing it...if you really want to tape stuff up, look at Utrecht or another art store for "art tape" - a really high quality masking tape. It sticks really well and comes off cleanly, even after a long period of time.
Most of my posters that I really like I just frame...there are framing stores (check the phone book) or arts and crafts stores that may have frame sections. Some places (including online) you can also order frames /with/ the poster.
