Unique NSJF posters of the Paul Acket Archive : the story behind
June 2016: I was standing in the basement of Karin Acket’s house.
After the death of her father Paul (1993), who had started up the NSJF in 1976, a lot of festival material had remained in the house . No one had bothered about it . At least not for 23 years.
For example, there were a few piles of Art Posters which have become so typical for the festival . Also program journals (who = who) and the characteristic large black-and-white festival posters with star announcements for the city of The Hague and, at a later stage, also for other large Dutch cities, were collecting dust in the basement.
Together with those who organize the NSJF as well as with Karin Acket, I was wondering around in that basement, snooping around yet with humble respect, admiring, flicking through piles of documents carefully . I felt I was in a goody department store ! All of us decided, we couldn’t leave all those treasures behind . Especially not since I have been selling jazz posters on the festival myself for years, and still sell them in my shop .
Therefore, I am happy to announce the treasures we found will now go on sale . Please flick through this special collection displayed here on my website.
The number of items varies . Sometimes, only 1 item is left, in other cases there might be 15 . Either way, the numbers are limited, so don’t wait too long to decide !
You will notice we have applied a watermark, to prevent copying . Of course, there is no such text on the posters you can purchase . As usual, you will get the original posters from the old days in a round tube .
On behalf of Karin Acket and Jan Willem Luyken, director of the NSJF, I wish you lots of happy memories and fun . Have a jazzy look around !

PURCHASE A FINISHED PRODUCT: Jazz Lamin’ARTS
Where WallThatJazz is in fact a specialty Posters store, Atelier Lamin´Art offers a very original and surprisingly affordable alternative for poster framing: wood mounting (´houtlaminage´).
It´s a process through which our posters are prepared with a transparant, protective coating, and glued on top of a panel of MDF hard wood. The Laminart will receive a good and professional finishing, handpainted around the edges, in any suited color to your liking. By looking in our gallerie, you´ll browse through our JazzLaminArts collection.
