John Barnes Linnett
John Barnes Linnett (born c. 1831) was a British lithograph printer based in Birmingham, England. Although the French Pierre-Hubert Desvignes is generally credited with being the inventor of the flip book, Linnett was the first to patent the invention, in 1868, under the name of kineograph.
Linnett died of pneumonia. His wife sold the patent to an American.
