mounting a poster

I've just bought a cool poster that I want to mount onto a board (then build a frame around the board), but I am wondering what the best adhesive would be. Is wall paper paste lumpy? Will spray adhesive be strong enough if I weigh it down with another board? This will be a one shot deal and it was expensive so have to make sure whatever I use works. Any experience out there? Thanks

Yes, I suppose the simpliest thing to do would be to frame it the old customary way, but I bought a picture last year that is done in this method. No glass. But this method is very effective (I'd send a picture if I knew how) and I'd like to duplicate it. My only indecision is with the mounting. Spray adhesive or maybe wallpaper paste seem to be the only options that come to mind. Thanks for your reply
