'Cobb' Shinn (Sept. 4, 1887- Jan. 28, 1951) was a Fillmore, Indiana-born post card illustrator who sold a series of effective novelty postcard lines that included (amongst others) Charlie Chaplin, cars and the Dutch culture in the starting years of the 20th Century.

After serving in World War I, Shinn discovered the marketplace for novelty postcards decreasing, and he likewise lent his creative abilities to cartoon functions and showing lots of children's books [including his own, under the nickname 'Uncle Cobb'] which taught easy detailed illustration methods.

Some time in the 1920s, he eventually migrated into the field of providing electrotypes and stereotypes of 'stock cuts' of photos and line art to the printing trade. In the days of letterpress printing, this was the leader of paper clip art and its successor, electronic clip art.

Purchasing many of his designs from 'journeyman' artists of the time, the diversity of Cobb Shinn's stock cuts library grew with the passing years, reflecting altering times, styles and topics.

Some of the illustrators whose signed works were presented in Shinn's 'CUTalogs' [as he called his stock cuts brochures] include Mary Clemmitt, Louis H. Hippe, E.C. Klinge, Nelson White, Harvey Fuller, Bess Livings, Lois Head, Harvey Peake and Van Tuyl.

Upon his passing in 1951, it's not known how long the Indianapolis-based company existed before finally closing its doors.

One of the more popular series of animations were the line illustrations of guys and ladies passionately called 'little huge head guys' by numerous modern-day fans of these cuts because the heads of the characters were drawn rather bigger than the rest of their bodies.

Shinn Kickers JNL is a collection twenty-six of these illustrations, and much like a begin the shin (as the pun in the name indicates), these lovely cartoons get your attention.
