Sinnepoppen (1614) is an emblem book of the Dutch Golden Age by Roemer Visscher.

"Sinnepoppen, first published in 1614, is perhaps the most popular emblem book of the Dutch Golden Age. The work contains 183 emblems, divided into three sections, so-called 'schocken'. The word 'schock', meaning 'a set of sixty', refers to the number of emblems in each part of the book. In the first two 'schocken', no human figures are depicted, thus abiding by the rules for emblematists laid down by earlier Italian authors such as Paolo Giovio."[1]
