Hello- I don't know very much about woodblock prints and just received what I think is a Kakemono - a woodblock print on a scroll. It was packed in a wooden box and is rolled up. The fabric of the scroll is yellowed and seems fragile; what is the best way to store/display this object?

After searching a bit I saw one for sale, framed - is that the way to go? My guess is that the wood (which may contain acid) may not be great for the print...

Thanks!
