Unique NSJF posters of the Paul Acket Archives : the story behind
June 2016: I was standing in the basement of Karin Acket’s former family house.
After the death of her father Paul (1992), 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 .
All our posters are ORIGINALS ones and in good condition: However, slight paperloss or tear are possibly present, as wel as grease or adhesive stains, but not in image or crucial design area.
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.
