Putting a poster on textured wallpaper

The wallpaper in my apartment has a texture, as you can see from this picture:

I tried putting a poster on the wall with masking tape but it detached within a day. Any recommendation for a way to attach it without damaging the wall? I also want to put up a map ad a bunch of postcards.

IMO it's best not to use any type of adhesive to hang something over wallpaper, especially if it's a rental!

3M makes a putty you can use. Never tried it myself so I can't comment on how it works but it's supposed to pull off the wall with no marks when you're done.

push-pins or thumb tacs...pick a color @ a local arts and crafts store
the holes will not be noticable from a distance should you remove it
