Friends save me their used art calendars as well. I left behind a great
collection when I moved to Tucson.

I'm a pretty low-tech person and have no idea what other people were
talking about in other replies to Krista's question. I still use slides
(have my own projector), but have supplemented them with transparencies
on the OHP, made with my year old color printer, which is pretty
high-tech for me. When I want to display the transparencies on the
wall, I just slip them in a plastic sleeve with a piece of white paper
behind it. They're not great but they'll do 'til I can build up a new
poster collection. You can probably find a good used slide projector
somewhere for a reasonable amount; everyone's switchin' to those
new-fangled thangs.
