Any pictures from the collective of framed pencils and inks on separate boards?  I purchased such a page and am weighing options for framing.  The leader in the clubhouse right now is to frame them both and have the published page in the middle.  Would make for a large framed piece in total, but I think would look nice.

If you have to frame everything together (not a fan of that) then I prefer the tall presentation to the wide:

Somebody on CAF (can't remember his name) had a game room that was wall to wall comic cover art on top and comic on the bottom...it was really nice. In your case, I'd suggest a double-window with the inks on top and pencils below, no published page. (Triple is getting very tall if nothing else!) Ultimately it's up to you. The point being...when you do a few this way, they hang better together tall than wide. IMO ;)

Adding to my daughters' already stellar collection of OA... a Merry Christmas indeed. Assembled from a couple eBay auctions which were from different SDCC years, so there is a slight paper color difference between the Bats (2016) and Joker/Harley (2017).

Thought I'd share the wall shot too. Stuck between two Perez pieces (cover to Archive edition and Wonder Girl pin-up), with a Zach Howard TMNT on the far wall. And the desk has the Fabok Batman and a Sienkiewicz Raven.

Its all personal and depends on room. For me - I love having art up - dont need the published comic taking up wall space that could be used by more art.  If you dont have many pieces, and have the space, all 3 is nice too.
